1. Lost World For decades the dinosaurs of Africa were lost to us. But recent discoveries have now revealed some of the most spectacular dinosaurs ever found. Two giant killers, both bigger than T.rex; one of these has captured our imaginations; Spinosaurus, the biggest killer known to have walked the earth. Only now has evidence been unearthed that reveals just how two giants managed to survive side by side.
2. Feathered Dragons This episode reveals the bizarre and extraordinary feathered dinosaurs that have only just been discovered; dinosaurs like Microraptor, Sinornithosaurus and Epidexipteryx; dinosaurs that have revolutionized our understanding of life on earth and blur the boundaries between dinosaurs and birds.
3. Last Killers This episode explores the last generation of killer dinosaurs. At the end of the Cretaceous period these hunter killers had spread throughout the globe. In the southern continents it was the powerful and muscular abelisaurs, like Majungasaurus, that reigned supreme. Whereas in the north it was the famous tyrannosaurs, like Daspletosaurus, that dominated.
4. Fight for Life This episode journeys to the Jurassic period. This was a time when the first giant killers stalked the earth. But these giants weren't confined to the land, recent discoveries have revealed an astonishing new hunter in the oceans; Predator X. From the oceans to the land these new giant killers posed the greatest of threats with the smallest advantage tipping the balance between life and death.
5. New Giants This episode focuses on the new giants, the heavyweights of the dinosaur world. It's only in recent years that we've unearthed the biggest dinosaurs that ever lived. One monster eclipsing all others was the immense Argentinosaurus - a single backbone was bigger than a human. For years these giants were considered immune to attack from any predator until the discovery of Mapusaurus.
6. The Great Survivors This final episode explores the dinosaurs' extraordinary ability to survive. From the Magyarsaurus, which showed an amazing adaptation to island life, to the Nothronychus, a carnivore that gave up meat eating. This astonishing capacity to evolve meant that dinosaurs not only spread throughout the world, but also, dominated life upon it for more than 160 million years.

The 3D effects were quite good, but i found the animations overall unconvincing, as I did much of the explanations in the dialogue. Read morePublished 1 month ago by StephJ
