Travel back to prehistoric times and experience the wonders of ancient Earth with a collection of three dinosaur films from BBC Home Entertainment.

bbc4Chased by Dinosaurs is a monstrous, Emmy® Award winning triple feature from the creators of Walking with Dinosaurs that takes viewers around the world and brings the lizards of the past to life. Journey back to the sand dunes of Mesozoic Mongolia and discover the therizinosaurus, a gigantic dinosaur with enormous 28-inch claws in The Giant Claw; travel to South America’s Patagonia and see the animal kingdom’s most awesome hunt in Land of Giants; and in Allosaurus go back 150 million years in a stunning recreation of the life of “Big Al,” the dinosaur whose complete fossil skeleton was discovered in Wyoming. Bonus material includes “Big Al Uncovered,” a 30-minute look at the science behind Allosaurus.

Extreme Dinosaurs is a dino double feature that will challenge a number of the previous perceptions of the Tyrannosaurus Rex. In Extreme Dinosaurs, accompany Paleontologist Dr. Philip Currie as he searches for evidence of a fiercer predator than the T-Rex – the Argentinosaurus, a six-ton flesh-eating dinosaur; and in T-Rex: Warrior or Wimp, watch as the T-Rex’s reputation as the meanest, most bewitching dinosaur comes into question.

Predator Dinosaurs uses innovative techniques through biomechanics, CGI, special effects and hi-tech scans to provide an insightful look at dinosaurs and challenge theories about the prehistoric world.

The giftset includes a viewfinder full of 3D dinosaur images and instructions on how to upload new images to create your own 3D viewfinder reels.
