Article of the Month (April 2014)

Walking With Dinosaurs is a six-part dinosaur television documentary mini-series that was produced by the BBC, narrated by Kenneth Branagh, and first aired in the United Kingdom in 1999. The series was subsequently aired in the United States on the Discovery Channel with the Branagh's narration replaced with that of Avery Brooks. The series uses computer-generated imagery and animatronics to recreate the reign of the dinosaurs, beginning in the late Triassic period and concluding in the late Cretaceous period at the K-T boundary mass extinction event, 66 million years ago.

The Guinness Book of World Records reported that Walking With Dinosaurs was the most expensive documentary series per minute ever made.

Imagine you could witness a prehistoric sunset - imagine you are watching insectivorous pterosaurs chase moths in the moist evening air and bull Triceratops lock horns over a young female. This is no longer a dream.

Walking With Dinosaurs makes that distant world as real and natural as images from today's Serengeti. Tracing the 160 million-year history of dinosaurs, from their first appearances to their abrupt demise, this series marks a watershed in television imagery.

Classic natural history techniques, leading edge computer technology and animatronics combined with the latest scientific findings, recreate the sights and sounds of an endlessly fascinating era. Walking With Dinosaurs brings to life the mystery and excitement of the age when these reptiles roamed our planet.

    Another issue I want to address while I'm at it: facts.  There have been many edit wars about correct facts and outdated facts.  I was wondering if we do what the Primeval Wiki has done.  Their fac…

    Hello editors, new and old!  I have recently been sent a question from a user about the recent (and drastic) changes to the wiki.  That person has said that the wiki is too confusing to new editors.  Let me be the first to assure you that there are wiki a thousand times more confusing than this one!  Let me tell you how to edit this wiki properly!

    One of the key aspects of a wiki apart from editing is presentation.  Before the changes the wiki used to look like the pictures shown on each side.  …

What is this wiki about?

This wiki is dedicated to the Walking With... trilogy and its specials which were made by Tim Haines and Jasper James. The trilogy's success started in April 1999 when Walking With Dinosaurs first aired in the UK. A special - The Ballad Of Big Al - aired a year later. Due to the huge success of the series, a sequel - Walking With Beasts - was produced and aired in 2001. Another special aired a year later called Chased by Dinosaurs. It was then followed by a less popular series Walking With Cavemen and a sequel to Chased by Dinosaurs - Sea Monsters. Two years later, a prequel to Walking With Dinosaurs - Walking With Monsters - aired.

In 2013, trailers for a film based on Walking With Dinosaurs were released. The film is called Walking With Dinosaurs 3D. In December, the film was released in theaters.
