What would it be like to go back millions of years and
be witness to one of life's amazing creations? How would you
feel to be able to walk, fly or even swim with the dinosaurs
that once roamed this earth? Well now that dream can come
true from the safety of your very own living room...
the creators of the Walking with Dinosaurs series comes
a three-disc special edition box set. Included in this set
are the titles Walking with Dinosaurs, The Ballad
of Big Al, The Giant Claw, and The Land of the
Ballad of Big Al tells the story of the almost complete
dinosaur fossil found in Wyoming in the USA of an Allosaurus,
hence the name Big Al. We follow Al's life from the day he
hatched to his death at 15 years old. As we follow his story
we find ourselves becoming quite attached to him and his death
becomes a moving scene.
Walking with Dinosaurs specials, The Giant Claw,
and Land of the Giants, feature Nigel Marven as the
presenter of these documentaries. Taking us back millions
of years ago on a prehistoric safari, Nigel comes face to
face with a huge Tarbosaurus - a 40 foot long carnivorous
advantage of using a presenter for these specials is so we
can actually get a sense of scale of these huge giants and
as an audience we can empathise with Nigel through some of
his more frightening scenes. His emotions are so believable
that you almost forget these are programs made with the latest
computer technology and animatronics, and find yourself transported
to the past with great ease.
50 minute special on the making of Walking with Dinosaurs
shows you everything from how the creators made the dinosaurs
walk, where they lived, what they ate and even how to make
your very own dinosaur dung. (You never know when this may
come in handy!)
special features include photo galleries, storyboard comparisons,
exclusive behind-the-scenes picture-in-picture sequences,
additional graphics and fact files of the dinosaurs.
being a great fan, of the Walking with... series, when
it first came to our screens I was pleasantly surprised at
how much I enjoyed this box set. If you've already seen the
series I would still recommend buying this even if just for
the Nigel Marven presented documentaries and the specials
that go with his films.
good to see a box set released that doesn't just package together
DVDs that have been released before - without providing any
real extras that haven't been seen before. This is a box set
that has extras on the extras.
must for any fan of the series.
