I purchased Prehistoric Earth, a Natural History, which is a 6 disc set, a "Walking With" Collection because it contained all of the really important discs in the evolutionary series from the beginning of life to man. Disc 1 is Before the Dinosaurs; Disc 2 is Walking with Dinosaurs; Disc 3 is Allosaurus plus extras; Disc 4 is Prehistoric Earth; Disc 5 is Walking with Prehistoric Beasts; Disc 5 is the Making of Walking with Prehistoric Beasts; and Disc 6 is Walking with Cavemen.

There were other collections entitled Walking With, but they were incomplete. Prehsitoric Earth is the only collection that gives you the whole big picture.

The series was well done, and the recreations were based on scientific and physical evidence.

I recommend this collection to those who want to see the whole big picture.

Reading Richard Dawkins' "The Selfish Gene" parallel with watching episodes of this awesome vdieo series (not intentionally) really was a moving experience. I knew halfway through TSG I would never look at humans the same way again, and was awstruck by the awesome power of evolution in relation to the age of the earth. I was curious how accurate this video series would be, but it is very accurate. It covers almost all aspects of evolutionary theory including animal aggression, kin altruism and of course the evolutionary adaptations that various species have gone through in their millions of years of existence. This is worth the money you pay because there are plenty of hours of video and each "period" is covered from the earliest sea animals through the dinosaurs to land animals and humans. The video is all computer generated, obviously, since no video footage could possibly exist for our ancestors (did I even need to say that? haha), but it's well made. It isn't very cheesy at all. I highly recommend this video series for anyone interested in the theory of evolution and behavior of these fascinating animals...our distant relatives! (creationist nutcases: save yourself the time and money).

This is an excellent series for introducing people to prehistoric life, and is beautiful in the way it envisions what life may once have been like.

Be forewarned that there are numerous artistic liberties taken with the facts in this film. It frequently shows animals interacting that never lived together, though most of the time animals LIKE those pictured lived together.

So, it's not a hyper-accurate scientific documentary, but it's illuminating, and gives people a lot to think about. I find that, for my schoolkids, the information is "accurate enough" and that many times they become interested in the material and learn more deeply about the information in the film on their own.

I'm a huge fan of Walking With Dinosaurs and all the other movies of the series (Walking With Monsters, Walking with Prehistoric Beasts, Allosaurus, and Walking With Cavemen). Most people who would be looking at this collection would already know what the series is about, but I'll speak briefly on it for newcomers. Basically, all these films are faux nature documentaries. When I say "faux" I mean to say that the narrative follows various extinct creatures around and describes them in a style similar to live action nature documentaries (such as the videos done by David Attenborough). Obviously, they couldn't really follow a real dinosaur around, so the series does include some speculation that is presented as fact (because it would sound really awkward with their premise if we were watching "real" dinosaurs and they starting saying things like "we think they may have done this"). Still, the films do include a lot of good information and are highly entertaining. This is a great series for either kids who are interested in dinosaurs or adults who still love watching dinosaur themed nature documentaries. Anyway, Walking With Monsters covers the period of time before dinosaurs evolved, Walking With Dinosaurs covers the beginning and end of the dinosaur periods, Walking with Prehistoric Beasts covers the mammals that came after the dinosaurs, and Walking With Caveman covers the early human ancestors. I'm less fond of Walking with Cavemen (just because it interests me less, but it's still good).

Anyway, since I love this series, I've been looking for ages for a Walking With... Collection that actually includes ALL of the materials from the series. I've found several in the past (The Ultimate Walking With... Collection, The Complete Walking With...

This was a amazing series! So much information and so many hours of high end computer generated creatures. For anyone that thought our world went from one celled creatures to T-rex to woolly mammoths, this is an eye opener. It really fills in the gaps and helps make sense of evolution.

My son has become an expert on all things prehistoric with the BBC DVDs on dinosaurs and this one. He compares the information with his books and learns pronunciation etc. My son is only 7 and an expert thanks to these DVDs . Warning though it is a bit graphic and the human evolution section may not be suitable for all.. I don't agree with all human evolution theories and had to explain this section to my son.
