This was originally a BBC Horizon special called "Extreme Dinosaurs". To my
knowledge it hasn't been released in the U.S. It was filmed in the summer
of 2000 (I was filmed a day or so after coming back from the Galapagos, so I
had for what passes on me as a tan... :-).
And the new giant carcharodontosaurs are still not named; paper is
apparently in process.
