Two hundred million years ago there was an extraordinary development in the history of life: a group of reptiles made a giant leap into the skies--the pterosaurs. in this BAFTA award-winning, ground-breaking documentary, David Attenborough travels back in time to discover how these creatures, with wingspans of up to 40 feet, took flight and why. Travelling to locations around the world, and with the help ofa team of scientists, Attenborough unravels one of palaeontology's enduring mysteries and discovers how the marvel of pterosaur flight has evolutionary echoes that resonate today. This visually stunning film combines new finds and the latest research with cutting-edge technology and CGI to bring the story of giant flying monsters and their prehistoric world to life. Audiences of all ages will be in awe as they experience the world of flying monsters.

As a special feature this DVD contains a 50-minute companion documentary: "Making David Attenborough's Flying Monsters"
