    I have the original UK-released PAL BBC version of the set, on one disc. Its quite nice, but Bob Hoskins' posh accent is more difficult to take seriously than the CG Dinosaurs - they are at the very least up to the standard of Walking With... from the same team. Its all a little bit worthy-but-dull, but the picture quality is great on my PAL version, even though the 5.1 is a touch flat (kind of to be expected for something that started as a TV show).

    The production seemed fine up until it became the story of the apeman vs. the explorers, which had nothing to do with the novel. Special effects are good, acting competent. About an hour too long.

    I just picked the two disc set up at Best Buy this evening and discovered that it is NOT widescreen as the packaging states. Both the box that the two discs came in and the actual case that the feature is in state that it's an "exclusive widescreen presentation (1.78:1)."

    Does anyone have any information on the proper aspect ratio? A&E did show it 4:3.
