Overview

After the huge success of Walking With Dinosaurs and Walking With Beasts, we now have-from the same BBC stable-Monsters We Met. New archaeological evidence suggests that as our ancestors spread out across the planet they battled with colossal predatory mammals, strange birds, and chilling reptiles. Monsters We Met reconstructs the extraordinary moments when modern humans first encountered these creatures. The first humans never saw dinosaurs, but they certainly fought with their ancestors. After the dinosaurs, huge ripper lizards, carnivorous kangaroos, dog-like bears and woolly rhinoceros roamed the earth, but few know our ancestors lived with these now extinct beasts. Monsters We Met looks at what happened when our ancestors met these extraordinary creatures. Did we hunt them or were we hunted? And why did they disappear? Supported by a major event on Animal Planet (July 27, 2003). Using dramatic reconstructions and spectacular "photographs" of prehistoric monsters combined with the latest archaeological and scientific discoveries, Monsters we Met tells the universal story of our journey out of Africa across the continents.
