Chased by Dinosaurs: Three Walking with Dinosaurs Adventures

Walking with Dinosaurs is a six-part documentary television miniseries that was produced by the BBC, narrated by Kenneth Branagh, and first aired in the UK, in 1999.

It is the first entry of the Walking with... series and used computer-generated imagery and animatronics to recreate the life of the Mesozoic, showing dinosaurs and their contemporaries in a way that previously had only been seen in feature films.

I first saw this mini series when it was released on VHS. This was probably around 2001 or 2002, so when I was 9 or 10. I would watch all 6 episodes back-to-back, over 3 hours worth, in one sitting. It has been YEARS since I checked it out but from what I remember, if you are a dinosaur fan then you will enjoy this series. Plus it's narrated by Kenneth Branagh (U.S. version), so there's that as well.
