IN DEVELOPMENT - Dinosaur Wars - 2 x 1hr Fact-based Drama
Just 200 years ago, most scientists thought the Earth was only a few thousand years old and fossilised bones were left in the rocks by God. Then a handful of men and women changed all that. Dinosaur Wars is the story of two sets of scientists, one in the UK and the other in the U.S. Between the years 1820 and 1880, these four rival “gangs” fought for supremacy, glory and fame as they raced to bring a new and previously unknown era to the world's attention: the prehistoric world of the Dinosaurs.
Interspersed with the drama are cutting edge VFX sequences bringing the dinosaurs they discovered to life, as well as some of the very strange creatures the early palaeontologists dreamed up before they got it right.
