Watch Walking With Beasts

"Walking With Beasts," known as "Walking With Prehistoric Beasts" in the US, was a six-part TV series made in 2001. Like other "Walking With X" programs, it copied the style of a nature documentary and had a narrator. "Walking With Beasts" is set in the Cenozoic Era which is both the current era and the one immediately after the extinction of the dinosaurs. The show therefore focuses on different kinds of mammals and has segments depicting whale, horse, and human evolution. It also includes such well-known prehistoric mammals as sabretooth tigers and wooly mammoths.

Walking With Beasts Full Episode Guide

  • It is 30,000 years ago and Earth is in the middle of an ice age. The landscape is dominated by the mighty mammoths, living side by side with woolly rhinos, giant deer and 2 separate species of human.

  • One million years ago, South America was home to a wealth of exotic oversized creatures found nowhere else on Earth.

  • A group of ape-like Australopithecus sit transfixed and stunned by the death of one of their members. The eldest female has fallen victim to malaria.

  • For well over 40 million years forests have dominated the world. They have been the cradle of evolution for the mammals, but the world is changing.

  • The mass extinction event that saw the demise of the dinosaurs and more than 70% of known land animals was almost as devastating in the seas.

  • For 160 million years the dinosaurs have ruled the world, while mammals have lived in their shadow - small animals clinging to safety in burrows in the ground and nests in the trees above. But the planet and its inhabitants have started to sicken, until the final straw comes - a ten kilometre wide meteor crashes into the Earth wiping out the dinosaurs and almost half of all known animals.
