Accompanied by both professional palaeontologists and amateur enthusiasts, David Attenborough returns to the quarries where he hunted for fossils as a boy, and visits fossil-rich sites all over the world. He looks at the problems associated with reconstructing an animal from a fossil, and explains the huge role now played by animations, computer graphics and articulated models. Dramatic dinosaur finds shed light not only on how these incredible creatures looked, but how they fed, hunted, courted, bred, called to each other and cared for their young. The biggest dinosaur question, of course, remains unanswered - David Attenborough asks why, after dominating the planet for over 160 million years, the dinosaurs became extinct? From landscapes covered in shards of dinosaur egg shell, to sites where animals and plants have been fossilised to give a detailed picture of the whole environment, David Attenborough travels the world opening windows onto worlds and lives that would otherwise be lost for good.
David Attenborough's comprehensive study of fossils, which give many clues to how life existed on pre-historic Earth, with mr attenboroughs voice he could make watching paint dry seem interesting, but that aside a wonderful look into the past from the present day
I found this DVD utterly fascinating. The scene where a very ordinary looking rock was split open to reveal a beautiful ammonite fossil had me wishing I was there to try my luck! Ii I have to have a gripe it is that 4 episodes were not enough - this series should have been at least as long as Life on Earth.
