SKU ID #296510
This graphics intensive mega-series takes you on a backwards timeline to see what stood,lived, fought and died in your backyard hundreds, thousands, even millions ofyears ago. For example, the high-rises and sprawl of modern Los Angeles revert to farmland and settlements, then desert. Spinning back further in time, wereveal a lush green land prowled by woolly mammoths and saber-toothed tigers. Back even further, we see the land itself form as two continental plates slam together in a violent upheaval. Rewinding to the age of dinosaurs, we witness pterodactyls circling the skies over an ancient ocean filled with sharp-toothed marine dinosaurs in search of their prehistoric prey. The focus of this series will be the amazing extinct creatures that once called our cities home. While many people know that ferocious dinosaurs and large mammals once roamed America, very few realize that these creatures stalked the exact sites where we've built our major cities and most famous landmarks. We are literally walking in the footsteps of these extinct animals every day, without even realizing it. Episodes: New York, Chicago, D.C., Denver, Dallas, and Los Angeles.
