Stephen Fry, celebrated actor, author and writer is magically transported back in time to chart the 180-million-year story of the dinosaur. In this landmark tv treat for all ages we follow Stephen into a hyper real world where prehistoric beasts roam. As if transported into a life size video game, Stephen encounters all of the dinosaurs that we know and love.
Using the latest CGI engines that allow interaction within both the digitally created worlds and with the dinosaurs themselves, and cutting-edge virtual studio technology, Stephen immerses himself in these magical landscapes - to come face to face with the most iconic of these pre-historic beasts. From the immense Diplodocus and the terrifying T.rex, to the deadly Allosaurus, the highly intelligent Raptors, and the three-horned, tank-like Triceratops.
