article imageOp-Ed: ‘Planet Dinosaur’ - new BBC series

By Alexander Baron     Sep 14, 2011 in World
Tonight, the BBC screened the first in a new 6 part half hour series on the dinosaurs which provides a fascinating new insight for everyone from primary school kids to intelligent laymen to Richard Dawkins himself.
If you’ve had enough of soap operas with convoluted and at times unsavoury plots, you’ll be glad to know that the BBC also commissions and produces some excellent programmes about the natural world. Although this particular natural world has long gone, its origins and evolution have been painstakingly reconstructed by palaeontologists and like-minded scientists over the past three hundred years, with an incredible amount of work being done and startling new discoveries being made over the past twenty or so years.
The series is narrated by the actor John Hurt, whose voice will be familiar to many listeners. Illustrated with realistic computer simulations, it has original music by the award winning composer Ilan Eshkeri.
The series is part of the BBC’s “Dinosaur Season”, and is currently available on iplayer.
