There was a time when few knew what dinosaurs looked like. This is the story of how Waterhouse Hawkins built the first life-sized dinosaur models and stunned the world with his awe-inspiring creations.

Reviews:
"As liteners pore over Selznick's rich paintings, (the narrator) breathes life into the dinosuars and the extraordinary characters - including the pompous and conniving scientist William "Boss" Tweed." - AudioFile
"...the adaptation zoom(s) in and out to emphasize the details of the nineteenth-century Waterhouse Hawkins, who is rembered for building 'the first life-size dinosaur models'...Background Victorian-era music adds atmosphers, evoking the awe elicited by Hawkins' models." - Booklist
"Highly recommended. Editor's Choice." -****, Video Librarian
