BBC and PBS Team Up for the Return of ‘Walking With Dinosaurs’ Fsalinks

BBC Studios and PBS are teaming up to bring back Walking With Dinosaurs to screens 25 years after the series first aired.

In 1999, the BBC’s documentary-style mini­series became a cultural phenomenon thanks in part to its state-of-the-art CGI creatures. Narrated by Kenneth Branagh, the show won two BAFTAs and three Emmys (Discovery Channel aired it in the U.S.), spawning a companion book and an arena show that toured the globe.

The new six-part series, co-produced with ZDF and France Télévisions, will take audiences on a “unique journey back through time, revealing the incredible life stories of these long-lost giants” across the land in Morocco, North America, and Portugal.

Arriving in 2025, each episode of Walking With Dinosaurs will tell the dramatic story of an individual dinosaur whose remains are currently being unearthed by the world’s leading dinosaur hunters. Thanks to cutting-edge science, experts can reveal how the creatures lived, hunted, fought, and died more accurately than ever before.

Jack Bootle, BBC head of commissioning, specialist factual, said: “A whole new generation of viewers is about to fall in love with Walking With Dinosaurs. The original series was one of the most exciting factual shows of all time, and this reinvention builds on that amazing legacy. Each episode is underpinned by the very latest science but is also filled with drama – making this a series for both dino lovers and people who just want to be told a great story.”

Walking with Dinosaurs is produced by BBC Studios Science Unit.
