Recently this has been spun into a series of paperbacks based on this
story, called, I think, "Dinosaur World".  I read the first one and can
find the name if anyone wants it.  The time travellers come back to an
alternate future (ours) and some teenagers, one of whom wants to be a
paleontologist, gets transported back to the Mesozoic, where they find
intelligent dinosaurs.  It was fairly trashy, I felt no inclination to
look for subsequent books in the series.
