The first two disks (Walking with Dinosaurs, The Ballad of Big Al) are fantastic. They immerse you in the prehistoric world and make you follow the adventures of various animals. It's incredibly well done, and very emotional. The best nature show I've ever watched.

The third disk (Land of giants, The giant claw) is much weaker. No immersion, no story, no emotion. An annoying guy traveling with his car or small plane among the prehistoric animals. This of course ruins the whole effect. Showing bones ruins the effect too. They should have put the CGI in one show, with a little story to keep things flowing nicely. They they should have put Nigel and the bones in a "making of" extra.

Anyway, don't let this stop you from buying the big box. The first two disks are totally worth the price by themselves.

This box set is superb value (under a tenner at the time of writing). The DVDs are informative and entertaining. It's not often that my six year old asks to watch a DVD more than once but he absolutely loves the 'Walking With Dinosaurs' episodes, prompting him to ask loads of questions and find out more about Dinosaurs.

Bought out of a childish fascination with dinosaurs, this DVD box set did not disappoint. Would recommend to entertain and educate children (despite a few of of the dinosaurs leaning suspiciously toward fiction), the shows were certainly entertaining and there are quite alot of episodes in the box. Also good for adults with an interest in the prehistoric. Its enjoyable to watch the period come to life in front of your eyes. I'm a university student, and these DVDs certainly entertained myself and my flatmates. A nice product.

walking with dinosaurs is one of my all time favourite doco's. with very good special effect's and commentary by
kenneth branaugh, the bbc have presented an enjoyable and interesting look at prehistoric life on earth.
this boxset makes great value for money with the inclusion of 'the ballad of big al' and 'the giant claw'. a fascinating look at a rare plant eating dinosaur that featured massive front claws.
an excellent boxset, highly recomended to anyone!

"The Big Dinosaur" box was sheer, delightful entertainment from start to finish, enjoyed by both adults and kids in the family. The special effects and animation have dated very well, and look just as fresh as they were when these programmes were first screened on TV.

The walking with dinosaurs series is fantastic the cg is good but the animitroics are a bit off and the narration is fantastic. The ballad of big All is also very interesting and has the same high standards as walking with dinosaurs. The ones featuring Nigel Marven are still very good cg wise but Nigel's acting is mediocre, sometimes his rections to the dinosaurs are not believable. But a good boxset all together worth every penny.

My son got this box set for his 6th birthday and he is a major dino obsessive! Walking with Dinosaur's is the best DVD of the 3 but the Ballad of Big Al and Giant Claws are also very good - the special extra's disc weren't of much interest to my son (though I think they will become interesting when he's older) but I enjoyed them! The violence isn't gratuitous - unlike many dinosaur programmes we've seen - and isn't scary or upsetting in my opinion. Overall this is a great value box set and is a great way to get kids into dinosaurs :)
