Walking With Dinosaurs Transports CPTV Audience Back Millions of Years
Walking With Dinosaurs, The Arena Spectacular: A CPTV Red Carpet Event
Walking With Dinosaurs, The Arena Spectacular will transport audiences back to prehistoric times on Saturday June 13 at 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. and Sunday, June14 at 8 a.m. on CPTV. The program, which is part of CPTV’s Red Carpet Series, takes a behind-the-scenes look at how this spectacular arena show, which includes a fleet of 15 life-sized dinosaurs, was produced.
Viewers will see how the dinosaurs in the show, the largest being Brachiosaurus who is 36 feet tall, and 56 feet from nose to tail, were built from gargantuan aluminum frames that were covered with Lycra, cotton, foam and textured stencils. It took a team of 50 – including engineers, fabricators, skin makers, artists and painters, and animatronic experts – a year to build the original production.
Ten species are represented from the entire 200 million year reign of the dinosaurs, including the Tyrannosaurus Rex, the terror of the ancient terrain, as well as the Plateosaurus and Liliensternus from the Triassic period, the Stegosaurus and Allosaurus from the Jurassic period, and of course, the Brachiosaurus.
The show also depicts the dinosaurs’ evolution, complete with the climatic and tectonic changes that took place, which led to the demise of many species. With almost cinematic realism, Walking With Dinosaurs has scenes of the interactions between dinosaurs, and the audience sees how carnivorous dinosaurs evolved to walk on two legs, and how the herbivores fended off their more agile predators.
"Walking with Dinosaurs, equally as educational and entertaining for parents as children, is the closest you’ll ever get to experiencing what it was like when they walked and ruled the earth," said Carmen Pavlovic, the CEO of The Creature Production Company, which is bringing the show to the United States.
Based on the award-winning BBC Television Series, Walking With Dinosaurs, The Arena Spectacular is narrated by an actor who guides the audience through the 200 million years when dinosaurs ruled the earth.
During the broadcast, CPTV will tell viewers how they can get tickets to this CPTV Red Carpet event.
