DINOSAURS, like you’ve never seen them before.
That’s basically the pitch for David Attenborough’s new Apple TV+ series, and it’s spot on.4Episode one features a pregnant TuarangisaurusCredit: Apple 4Pterosaurs fight for mates over the deserts of North AfricaCredit: Apple
The new BBC-produced natural history show animates dinosaurs in spectacular quality.
It’s helmed by Jon Favreau (Marvel Studios, The Lion King), and had a team of 10 palaeontologists fact-checking every last detail.
The Hollywood-grade visuals and storytelling showcase some of Earth’s most iconic (but long-gone) creatures over five episodes.

It brings dinosaurs to life with compelling stories that show how all of their lives were so deeply interlinked.
And we place them on Earth with real location footage, transporting us through history like never before.
Even the series opening is spectacular.
The first episode is focused on coasts, and we see a gargantuan Tyrannosaurus rex swimming across the ocean.Most read in TechNOTE ON A SCANDAL Elon's eerie prediction in old tweet before claims he 'EXPOSED himself'THE BLOB Never seen before 'hot blob' found within Earth leaves scientists 'puzzled'UNSAFE SEX The space sex problems that could stop Elon Musk colonizing Mars with new babiesMAKING AMENDS Twitter brings out fake news policy as Elon Musk deal remains 'on hold'
It’s not usually how we imagine the T-rex, so it’s already clear this series is dealing differently with dinos.
We see heartwarming footage – that you’d think was real if logic didn’t tell you otherwise – of the daddy T-rex flanked by its babies.
They’re desperately racing to shore to find a meal, but an even bigger predator lurks below.
I won’t spoil it for you, but it’s a cracking (and very intense) opening.
The second episode moves to deserts – barren wastelands of prehistory made thrilling by the hardy dinos that once occupied them.
We see the brutal lives many dinosaurs endured, and how these magnificent creatures survived against (almost) all odds.
You spend a lot of time wondering how they could possibly know some of the details.
Admittedly, some of what we see will be pure educated speculation.
But modern science allows us to know much more about these creatures than ever before.
It’s very more-ish, and is ruddy good entertainment too.
David’s familiar and trusted voice really bolsters the project.
It makes these often-alien creatures seem like you could just stumble upon them in the real world – just like any of his fantastic nature docs.
The music is gorgeous and suspenseful. You’ve got Hans Zimmer (Lion King, Inception) to thank for that.
If you’ve got any interest at all in dinosaurs, nature or science, you will love this show.
In fact, it’s such fun that simply being alive is probably all you need to have a brilliant time watching Prehistoric Planet.
It’s hard to say what the end message of the series will be.
This is at Attenborough project – and an Apple production – so it’s likely there’ll be some moralising at the end.
I suspect it will be something along the lines of: we lost all of this majestic life through a freak accident, so let’s take better care of the animals we still have – while we can.
But maybe they’ll go full Jurassic Park and advocate for the revival of dinosaur life.
Maybe that wouldn’t be such a bad thing? The baby T-rex were very cute…Read More on The SunAPPLE JUICED Simple iPhone hack will stop you from making the BIGGEST charging mistake

Twins walk-off against Orioles closer Jorge Lpez for second straight day, take series with 4-3 win in 10 innings
The Minnesota Twins walked off against Orioles closer Jorge López for a second straight day, with a game-tying home run from Jorge Polanco in the ninth inning and Jose Miranda’s walk-off single in the 10th handing Baltimore a 4-3 loss.
The Orioles entered the series undefeated at 29-0 when entering the ninth inning with a lead, largely because of López’s dominance in that frame. He took the mound Friday riding a 15-outing scoreless streak and hadn’t surrendered a home run in 37 innings this season, but then allowed longballs to consecutive batters between Byron Buxton’s two-run walk-off Friday and Polanco’s solo shot Saturday.
López’s second straight loss — and the fourth straight for the Orioles (35-44) — wasted a strong start from Jordan Lyles, who carried a shutout into the seventh. After Minnesota put two in scoring position against him with no outs in the third, Lyles began a run of 13 straight Twins retired, which ended on Nick Gordon’s home run on his 100th pitch with one out in the seventh.
Dillon Tate finished that frame before putting runners on second and third, with Félix Bautista impressively holding the Orioles’ lead against the middle of the Twins’ order, though he allowed a sacrifice fly to make it a one-run game.
Before Gordon’s home run, the Orioles held a 3-0 lead thanks to an RBI double from Tyler Nevin in the second, Anthony Santander’s 15th home run in the third and Jorge Mateo’s sacrifice fly to score Rougned Odor in the fourth.
