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."
