Walking with Dinosaurs stomps into digital age with website and apps

BBC programme Walking with Dinosaurs is set to face the digital era, as it launches an interactive website, new apps, a PlayStation game and a 3D movie.

Created by BBC Worldwide and RED Interactive, the website is being billed as 'the ultimate website for dinosaur fans', and is set to be expanded, with a resident palaeontologist on hand to answer questions.

Two new apps are set to launch for iPads and iPhones, with an android version to be unveiled shortly.

Walking with Dinosaurs: Digisaurus will allow younger fans to interact with a T-Rex or Utahraptor, while Walking with Dinosaurs: Inside their World is an interactive dinosaur encyclopaedia narrated by Stephen Fry.

BBC Worldwide's chief brands officer Amanda Hill said: “Walking with Dinosaurs brings science and entertainment together to create a potent mix of fun, fear and fact. With the relaunch of this iconic brand, we're setting out to captivate audiences, bringing the thrill of discovery to movie screens, live events and online with the launch of our new website, the ultimate celebration of these incredible creatures and our fascination with them.”

A film: Walking with Dinosaurs 3D - a BBC Earth, Evergreen Films and Reliance Entertainment co-production, is set to hit screens next Christmas.
