Ratings & Reviews
This video is part of a series that examines the world of dinosaurs. Hosted by actor Jeff Goldblum, the series looks at the giant creatures who roamed all areas of the earth, and whose sudden disappearance remains a topic of scientific debate. Was Immanuel Velikovsky right in his theory about the disappearance of the dinosaur? Where is the real Jurassic Park? These and other questions are presented in the video, with computer graphics and 3-D animation that re-create the world in which the dinosaurs lived. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi
When Dinosaurs Ruled: Ground Zero
One of a five-part series produced by The Learning Channel and narrated by Jeff Goldblum of Jurassic Park, this is an account of the centuries-long search for evidence of the existence, habitats, and attributes of dinosaurs -- with a focus on the places where the earliest fossil evidence has been discovered and how the first dinosaurs are thought to have lived and evolved. Enhanced 3-D animation enlivens the strange, impressive beings -- depicting them in "real life" situations. Accounts of scientific explorations and expeditions are included. The DVD is interactive, allowing the viewer to jump from place to place to compare the information, and a trivia quiz is included for enthusiasts. Chapters include "Descent of Dinosaurs," "Another Needle," "Jurassic," "Titanasaurus," "Pterodactyl," and "Constant Growth." ~ Alice Duncan, Rovi
When Dinosaurs Ruled: Africa - The Land that Time Forget
This is one entry in a five-part series produced by The Learning Channel and narrated by Jeff Goldblum of (#Jurassic Park) -- an account of the search for fossil evidence of prehistoric life throughout the world and a depiction of the probable history and habits of dinosaurs. The focus of this episode is Africa, where 200 million years ago, vast areas that are currently sun-parched desert provided more survivable habitats. The production includes accounts of scientific explorations and fossil-hunting expeditions such as the century-long quest for a legendary creature, Mokele Mobombe, which led to the discovery of the first evidence of dinosaurs' existence south of the equator. Enhanced 3-D animation enlivens the gargantuan beasts, depicting them as flesh-and-blood creatures in "real life" situations. The DVD is interactive, allowing the viewer to jump from place to place for comparison. A trivia quiz is included for those who want to commit the information to memory. ~ Alice Duncan, Rovi
When Dinosaurs Ruled: Birth of the Giants
Join paleontologists Bob Bakker, Jim Kirkland, and Phil Currie for a journey into the age of dinosaurs in the documentary When Dinosaurs Ruled: Birth of the Giants. Part of a five-volume series, this 60-minute program takes an in-depth look at the dinosaurs that roamed Europe, Canada, and the U.S. Through the scientific examination of fossils, much is being learned not only about the various types of dinosaurs that inhabited these regions, but also about their adversaries. The other tapes in the series include When Dinosaurs Ruled: Ground Zero, When Dinosaurs Ruled: The Real Jurassic Park, When Dinosaurs Ruled: The Land that Time Forgot, and When Dinosaurs Ruled: At the Ends of the Earth. ~ Kathleen Wildasin, Rovi
When Dinosaurs Ruled: At the Ends of the Earth
This video is part of a PBS series, hosted by Jeff Goldblum, that looks at the world of the dinosaur. The dinosaur was an extremely adaptable species, whose habitat extended to the ends of the earth. The creatures were found in a variety of climates, from arctic to desert. Their ability to survive in such extremes makes their sudden disappearance from the earth even more interesting. This and other questions are considered on the show. The video features state-of-the-art animation and graphics to re-create the dinosaurs and the various environments in which they lived. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi
