BBC Earth - Walking with Beasts: Series 1 (2001) Part 1: New Dawn
For 160 million years dinosaurs have ruled the world, while mammals have lived in their shadow. Then a meteor crashes into the Earth wiping out the dinosaurs. 15 million years on, the world has changed. Birds, reptiles, mammals and insects live together waiting to establish a new order.


BBC Earth - Walking with Beasts: Series 1 (2001) Part 2: Whale Killer
The mass extinction event that saw the demise of the dinosaurs was almost as devastating in the seas. The oceans were emptied of almost all large animals and carnivorous creatures. 30 million years after the dinosaurs, the top of the ocean food chain is now occupied by an early whale: Basilosaurus.


BBC Earth - Walking with Beasts: Series 1 (2001) Part 3: Land of Giants
For 40 million years forests have dominated the world, helping mammals evolve, but the world is changing. The forests are punctuated by open plains. With the constraints of living in the forest lifted, evolution has produced the largest land mammal that ever lived, the Indricothere.
