fimbul-vetr asked: for that anon: walking with dinosaurs!!! my favorite tv series when i was a kid and oh my god i just checked wikipedia and apparently the original english version was narrated by kenneth branagh??? whoa
Yes, Walking With Dinosaurs also has to be one of my favourite docu series of all time (Walking With Beasts and Walking With Monsters included) and it was good ol’ Branagh indeed to provide his narrating voice for these (but even though i like Branagh i must admit that i’m a sucker for the man who narrated the German versions, Otto Clemens, whose voice is just….damn. I can’t even describe it)
Anonymous asked: Can you recommend any good Dinosaur documentaries? :) especially about raptors?
"Pod’s Travel" and "White Tip’s Journey", both episodes from the Discovery Channel Dinosaur Planet series.
I wouldn’t call them superior when it comes to technique but emotionally both of them were quite outstanding and i never get tired watching these once in a while. Pod’s Travel follows a Pyroraptor who is wrecked on a small island (with exploring the happenings of island dwarfing) while White Tip’s Journey tells the story of a Velociraptor - illustrating the events of that one popular fossilised fight between a Protoceratops and a Velociraptor. Both characters inspired me very much when i was younger and it sure is worth a look: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dinosaur_Planet_%28TV_series%29
(also, this series was narrated by Christian Slater. Come on, how cool is that)
