What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
Finally all three programs from the Emmy Award-winning Walking with... series--Walking with Dinosaurs, Allosaurus: A Walking with Dinosaurs Special, and Walking with Prehistoric Beasts--are available for the first time as a collector's set on DVD. The epic begins with a journey back 65 million years ago to a virtual lost world which has been recreated with spectacular digital effects and animatronics. The series continues as we follow the life and death struggles of "Big Al," the most complete allosaurus skeleton ever found. And finally, we explore our planet after the reign of the dinosaur and the succession of extraordinary creatures that came and went over the following millennia. The end of the dinosaur was only the beginning!

This special is worth every penny of the advertised price if you can't find it airing on TV anytime soon. For a TV special, the effects were some of the best I've seen on television. The combination of computer generated and animatronic dinosaurs looked incredible, and really give you the feeling that we were able to capture these creatures on video. The great thing about this special is that, unlike traditional documentaries, they used the scientific evidence they had found to create a story, as they did with "Allosaurus."
Overall, while I tihnk that maybe this DVD would be a little better value around $40, the specials are, without a doubt, the best nature specials I have ever seen.
ALLOSAURS - This half hour film seems to work as a small add on to Walking with dinosaurs. It deals with the life and death of an allosaurs named Big Al. Allosaurs serves as a nice half hour film that will please fan of Walking with Dinosaurs. It also contains a half hour making of film called Big Al uncovered.
WALKING WITH PREHISTORIC BEASTS - This six part three hour long film deals with the time after the dinosaurs and ends around today. It has just as realistic effects as the first film which has to be harder then Walking with dinosaurs because of hair. This epic story has primitive whales, hyenas the size of rhinos, and rhinos the size of three elephants. Like its predeceser it resembles a nature film only with extinct animals. Despite the fact that these creatures are a lot closer to todays animals then the dinos it still is just as intresting as Walking with Dinosaurs. This is a wonderful and inventive film that is worth watching for anyone.
All three films are in 1.78 anamorphic widescreen that is perfect for widescreen tvs not to mention it has one of the cleanest image transfers on any DVD. The main problem is sound.Read more ›
However, it's not really the 'complete' Walking with Collection, there have been 5 new episodes since this was released in the form of the BBC's followup new 'Chased by Dinosaurs' series (known as special episodes of Walking with Dinosaurs in the UK though still). They covered big dinosaurs like Argentionsaurus and the Gigantosaurus and lots of sea creatures like the giant shark Megadolon. Definitely worth checking out if you're a fan of the series.
And the makers of the series have even given the animals "personality" as they go about their daily struggles for survival in harsh and developing times.
This is a set for those that want their science informative and entertaining; in other words, a must-have for the student and the teacher.
