Walking With Dinosaurs:
Traces the 160 million year history of dinosaurs from their first appearance to their abrupt demise. This ground-breaking series explores the plants, insects and geography of the period as well as the dominant reptiles, evoking the mystery and excitement of the age when the great lizards ruled our planet. Combining classic natural history techniques with leading edge computer technology and animatronics, and the latest scientific findings, Walking with Dinosaurs recreates the sights and sounds of an endlessly fascinating era.

Walking With Monsters: An exploration of the evolutionary battle which raged on our planet for billions of years - a war between the most strange, savage and successful animals ever to walk on the earth. Four-metre long sea scorpions, ferocious ten-foot long mammals with dog-like skulls, mega-spiders the size of a human head... These are not some nightmare fantasy creatures, but just some of the animals that actually roamed the earth before the age of the dinosaurs...

State-of-the-art technology and scientific research enables us to witness, with incredible realism, an array of weird, wonderful and terrifying creatures. From early life where we meet the sea monster Anomalocaris, we watch the Hynerpeton - the first amphibian - develop and struggle to avoid the attacks of the giant five metre-long fish Hyneria. Evolution on land produces more bizarre beasts like the sail-backed, super-predator, The Dimetrodon; the half-reptile, half-mammal Gorgonopsid and the Euparkeria, a tiny reptile whose descendants will become dinosaurs.
