The documentary was filmed at the Natural History Museum, London, and uses CGI imagery to bring to life several of the extinct animal skeletons in the museum, including Archaeopteryx, the Moa Ratite bird (Dinornis) and Haast's eagle (Harpagornis moorei; lit. "grappling hook bird"), Gigantopithecus (contrasting prevailing expert opinion; presented as bipedal and more human than ponginae), Glossotherium, Ichthyosaurus and the London-based replica of the famous diplodocus skeleton Dippy.

The documentary was well-received, and won a TV BAFTA in the specialist factual category.[2] A companion book for the documentary was released under the same name.
