Synopsis:
Transporting you to locations across the globe and back in time through tens of millions of years, Planet Dinosaur uses unique hi-tech graphics to bring to life the most awesome and amazing creatures that ever lived. Almost all the dinosaurs featured were discovered in the last 10 years and forced a rewriting of the prehistory books. Palaeontologists now know that dinosaurs spread to every part of the globe and evolved in ways so monstrous, horrific and bizarre, they make T-Rex look very tame indeed. Planet Dinosaur is a completely immersive visual experience studded with curious facts and jaw-dropping action as well as charismatic monsters.
Presenting a brand-new global perspective on the prehistoric era, the series re-creates the creatures, their habitats and how they lived, from analysing their bones to watching them fight to the death.

Overwhelming - Planet Dinosaur review by JD

Spoiler Alert
05/03/2012

A lot of recent fossil finds allow a computer graphic simulation of life 100,000,000 years ago. Of course there are some gaps in our knowledge and of course there has been some guess work about certain details but if you allow some poetic license it is amazing what is known. John Hurt is a great actor but I didn't rate him as an interesting natural history narrator, especially when each episode has an identical 5 minute introduction, it starts to grate a little. There are a lot of new species identified since I last read about dinosaurs. At times keeping up can be hard going. The finer details interested me most.

Incredible. - Planet Dinosaur review by PN

Spoiler Alert
22/03/2018

For the first time I felt like I truly got a grasp of what it would be like to just wander around millions of years ago and how incredibly close these times were to the hunter predator life cycle of today, just everything was bigger. Some of the computer graphics although not flawless, were so good I could just immerse myself in what the show was trying to educate the viewer on and not feel like I'm irritated by poor animation. Only thing missing was David Attenborough narrating it! This is great for Dinosaur lovers, plenty to absorb from this.
