I have watched the adverts and I am now getting tickets it looks so cool, the size of them is unbelivable and the realism in there movment and sound is just unreal. I can't wait to go and see it, it's going to be great! :nod:

I saw it about a month ago, here in Canada, and it was incredible.
It was in a big stadium arena and I was in the 200 level and the baby brontosaurs was at eye level! And mamma was up in the rafters!

It was absolutely stunning.

I saw it here in Australia a year ago. Brilliant. Love the programs and this spectacle didn't disappoint - in fact it exceeded my expectations.
Now - 'Walking With Beasts'? Terror birds! YES!

I agree! I mean, I could even see the veins in the Brontosaur's neck!
And the fat jiggling on the back of it's legs!

I didn't know they were doing a bird one! That one may not make it on my list of things to see live...birds can be terrifying, especially if they're massively to scale! :hmm:

The attention to detail was truly staggering.
What I meant was they should do a live show of 'Walking With Beasts' featuring the Terror Birds. 5 metre tall killer birds.

I'm not sure how I'd feel having those kind of things walking around, in a exact replica, right in front of me...

The last Terror Birds only died out 15000 years ago. The Sabre Toothed Cats outcompeted them.
The specialised Cats themselves were outcompeted by their Lion, Cheetah, Tiger and Leopard cousins when the food chain shifted to include Australopithecus (bipedal primate or 'early man').
I wish they were still around with us today. I really do.

That doesn't seem as far back as I would have thought.
If they were still around today though, things would be so much different, our population more than likely wouldn't survive.
The same goes for dinosaurs, no matter how much I wish they still walked the earth.

So, for human kind, I suppose this is a good thing; extinction.

Yeh, true. Terror Birds always captured my imagination more than dinos, well, ever since I saw them on 'walking With Beasts'.
Thats why I like the film '10000bc', it has the TBs in it terrorising (funnily enough) the heroes instead of the cliche raptor.

The TV series itself was pretty damn awesome considering I first saw it when I was 14 years old.
I finally got all the series on DVD from 'Monsters' to 'Cavemen'.
I hear a lot of funny remarks by 'experts' about the shows and their accuracy, trying to sell what they show as fact, etc.
No-one is stupid, we all know its a best guess cobbled together from what we know so far and the habits of the creatures' surviving descendants (in the case of the cats and TBs thats very easy). That was obvious from when I first saw the show at about 15 or so years old. Maybe a tad later.
