Product Description

Product Description

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Special Dec 7 2003
By Scott
I'm not really a big fan of buying DVDs for specials or films that have already been shown on TV> Why would I want to pay $60 for a DVD of a show that I saw for free on Discovery Chanel? However the shows shown on Discovery channel are the exception to my rule. And "Walking With Dinosaurs" is one of the best.
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars As real as it gets July 6 2002
By A Customer
WALKING WITH DINOSAURS - This six part three hour long special explores the time while the dinosaurs ruled the earth. This fantastic journy has more dino shots then all three Jurassic Park films combined. The dinos are very realistic and make you fell like your there. We get to see the whole story from how the dinosaurs took over to there very end and all of the wonderful things that happen inbetween. It resembles a nature film only with dinosaurs pure genius. The only problem with this is that it shows the raptors with scaled bodys when in reality they had feathers. This is a wonderful and inventive film that is worth own to anyone.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Fantastic - Beyond 5 Stars Jan. 1 2004
By A Customer
Everyone has summed it up, this is a good as it gets in the doco world. Pure, undiluted quality. Fantastic animation, production values, narration and all around a+ performance, many of the effects in this series would not look out of place in a feature film, indeed the guys at Framestore have gotten so good at doing this they beat ILM at their own game at times IMO.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Monumental product March 24 2004
1000 words cannot describe the incredible graphics and presentation quality of this series. I consider these stories, based on real science and a monumental effort, to change the way we have thought of the earth millions of years ago. The dinosaurs in Walking With Dinosaurs are very real, maybe too real for young viewers, but believable and memorable. This $60 purchase could be the best investment in DVDs that can be bought. I have watched select story lines from the collection over and over without disappointment. Hence the purchase keeps on giving unlike the rest of my DVD purchases.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a show! March 13 2003
By Deana
Format:VHS Tape
What a fantastic buy. Well worth the money. Besides having the best visual effects to date, the video takes a documentary-style approach, following particular dinosaurs throughout a period of their lives, thereby creating a personal connection between the viewer and dinosaur. The only drawback was that it left me wanting more. I want to see similar representations of Dilophosaurus, Maiasaura, Troodon, and basically every other dinosaur out there. Since that's obviously impossible, this video set is quite a feat. You WON'T regret this buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forget the fiction of "Jurassic Park"! April 19 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Brilliant is an understatement to describe the best produced/animated "history" of the planet's prehistoric inhabitants. Vividly real creatures populate a landscape of constantly changing proportions.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars NOT a complete SET!!!!!
