Diplodocus Herd – Walking with Dinosaurs: Ballad of Big Al – BBC

Big Al’s skills as a predator are put to the test when he and two other Allosauruses face a herd of Diplodocus.

Broadcast in 1999, Walking with Dinosaurs set out to create the most accurate portrayal of prehistoric animals ever seen on the screen. Combining fact and informed speculation with cutting-edge computer graphics and animatronics effects, the series took two years to make.

    This is my favorite episode of Walking With Dinosaurs! The story is fascinating and tragic, the cgi and practical effects hold surprisingly well, and possibly Benjamin Bartlett’s best score I’ve heard to date, I’m surprised he’s not that well known! Walking with Dinosaurs has been one of my favorite shows of all time since I was 7, it’s been one that’s got me rewatching occasionally, and my first experience with Dinosaur Documentaries and nature documentaries! And I happily am glad to celebrate its 20th anniversary and hope it gets a special Blu-Ray treatment soon!

    It's incredible that only one series of Walking with Dinosaurs was ever made. The whole format was unique – everything since has been too 'sciency' (pauses, cross-section diagrams) instead of pure nature documentary like this.

    I watched this on Netflix, the really really old version, there was also another dinosaur movie animation, all I can remember about it is a girl snorting (laughing) and later got stuck inside a cave due to a rockslide

    What makes the scene even better is the fact that it was filmed on a real location! And the heads are puppets. An example of this is the scene of the Allosaurus roaring. The body is CGI though. Also, who loved the music? It was so good and epic!

    2:00 I felt sorry for the Allosaurus that fell down. It’s my favorite dinosaur. (I’m 13, so please don’t call me immature or something like that) also, why is this version of Allosaurus and Diplodocus the most popular?

    @BBC Studios Just for the record, Big Al was with more than just TWO Allosaurus when hunting the Diplodocus. There was just two shown at first. But from what I recall, he was hunting with three or four others total, not just two.
