THE WALKING WITH DINOSAURS specials are back on the BBC, with the premiere of THE GIANT CLAW and LAND OF GIANTS over the holiday season. For the first time in the WALKING WITH series, the special effects on display include the integration of a human being into the prehistoric landscape. Zoologist Nigel Marvin, who hosts both shows, travels back in time to ancient Earth in search of a variety of dinosaurs. Like any good wildlife presenter, Marvin doesnt mind getting his hands dirty, and both he and his camera crew find that some of the encounters with the dinosaurs can get a little too close for comfort. Framestore used the story line to expand on its award-winning effects created for the original WALKING WITH series, allowing the live-action crew to be seamlessly integrated with the computer-generated dinosaurs. THE GIANT CLAW: A WALKING WITH DINOSAURS SPECIAL will air on BBC ONE on Monday, December 30, 2002 at 8:30 pm and LAND OF GIANTS: A WALKING WITH DINOSAURS SPECIAL can be seen on BBC ONE on Wednesday, January 1, 2003 at 6:50 pm.
