This series fills in the blanks. We all know what happened to the dinosaurs--they died out 65 Million years ago. What most people don't know is just how fantastically cool mammal evolution is! This series shows you how mammals evolved from their distant origins to some of the most spectacular beasts to walk the Earth since the dinosaurs. My daughter is absolutely addicted to this series--she likes the Walking With Beasts shows even more than the Walking With Dinosaurs. Walking With Beasts also introduces you to some of humanity's ancient relatives. Watch Australopithecus try to survive in a world full of predators and tough giant mammal competition. Watch Neanderthals hunt mammoths. Watch modern humans survive in an ice age world. The whole Walking With series is just wonderful! It began with the dinosaurs, but then expanded to the less well known, but far more interesting life forms that have inhabited this planet. This show is good for anyone interested in animals, biology, geology, and evolution. Don't worry though, all the science is presented in a "you are there witnessing the action" fashion, so you are learning without even realizing it!

and the Woolly Mammoth. But how about the Leptictidium? A tiny early mammal. A tiny meat eater the size of a cat, who has to keep clear of the top predator of her time, the Gastornis, a flightless bird as big as a man and just as hungry!
Or how about the Andrewsarchus, a five meter long wolf-like creature with bone crunching jaws over three feet long and related to the whale. In fact it BECAME the whales!
This is a two DVD set. The first holds six amazing episodes about six different periods of Earth's history, from right after the death of the dinosaurs to just before man starts to rule the planet. The second holds lots of fun extras: interviews, TWO 50 minute long behind-the-scene featurettes, photos, fact files and even storyboards.
Really helps fill in that space between dinosaurs and us. A must for any DVD library!

Walking with Prehistoric Beasts is an interesting series for lovers of natural history.
One would think that someone who does Shakespeare well should be able to get a nature show narration right, but it's obvious that paleozoology isn't Kenneth Branagh's passion, and both here and in Walking with Dinosaurs one sometimes hears that he is reading a badly-rehearsed (and occasionally poorly-written) script. Sir David Attenborough with his authority and enthusiasm would have been perfect for the job, and I was a bit surprised that such a major BBC fronting didn't feature his legendary voice and employed his singular talent in writing nature show narrations.
That aside, I enjoyed it both visually and from the educational point of view, even more so than Walking with Dinosaurs as this is a period of time that we, due to the dino craze, have heard far too little about in the major public channels before (would a film called Eocene Park be a great hit?).
I particularly enjoyed learning more about the origin of whales with the incorporation of the recent fossil findings of the ambulocetus.
Recommended!

Format: DVD
I really LOVED "Walking with Prehistoric Beasts," and cannot recommend this documentary enough! This show will appeal to fans of nature documentaries who would like to view a researched but (fictional) account of the lives of ancient mammals. This series starts off at about 65 million years ago with the demise of the dinosaurs, and ends about 30 million years ago, with the demise of the Neanderthals. The animation and animatronics are so well done, so detailed that at times I forgot I was watching computer animation and animatronics. In particular, I loved the scenes with the saber-toothed cats, the hyeanadons and the ancient whales. Oh, and who can forget the andrewsarchus?
The narrator does an excellent job of describing each era, the animal life, the flora and fauna, and the climate change and how it impacts the animal populace. Creatures spring to life on the screen eating, drinking, fighting, dying, and yes even (mating).
Caveats: First: I wish the documentary had gone into a bit more detail with early homo sapiens and Neanderthals. I felt the impact of these early humans on their environment wasn't fully explored. Second: About the only scenes I saw where the animation was left than perfect, was where/when the animals fed. The chewing and eating motions didn't seem quite right. The early chimp-like humans were picking nits. But the nits never seemed to quite make it INTO the mouths. Etc.
Finally, one word of caution, while this did not bother me, some sensitive viewers and young children, might have trouble with repeat scenes of graphic violence, and animal death. Even though its animation, it is very realistically portrayed and no punches are pulled. This is not a movie intended for young children( although mature children will love it).

Walking With Prehistoric Beasts Dvd is great to watch. The background music is not my favorite. If I could change it I would. You can learn a lot about prehistoric animals before the dinosaurs came along. It is very easy to understand. A lot of interesting information to learn. I am very happy that I have purchased this dvd.
