Using a unique blend of strong natural history stories and advanced computer graphics, the team that brought you Walking with Dinosaurs recreates another extinct world, exploring the rise of mammals to the arrival of modern man. The demise of the dinosaurs, 65 million years ago, did not leave the world empty. A succession of extraordinary creatures has since come and gone and yet we know virtually nothing about them. These bizarre beasts were some of the most fascinating creatures ever to have inhabited our planet. Walking with Beasts takes you on a journey through time to distant worlds: from the hottest, wettest climate the earth has ever known to one of the coldest – The Ice Age. See the forerunners of the whale (walking), avoid the carnivorous pig, the size of a rhino, and pity the horse the size of a cat, eaten by a bird the height of a man.
Also includes the fascinating 50 minute special, Triumph of the Beast, which explains how mammals replaced dinosaurs as the largest, fastest, fiercest and most adaptable creatures on the planet.
