“I think a few of us, par­tic­u­larly Philip Miller who is our res­i­dent dino nerd, were aware that feath­ers were be­ing talked about when we first did the show, but back then we were bas­ing it on the orig­i­nal BBC se­ries.

“Some ideas take a while to ce­ment and be­come com­monly ac­cepted and in that time it’s be­come ab­so­lutely ac­cepted that a lot of dinosaurs had feath­ers.

“Although how many that did and how many feath­ers they had is still up for de­bate.”

Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group has 10 fam­ily passes to give away to Walk­ing With Dinosaurs on Fri­day, April 17. En­ter at www.in­my­commu­nity.com.au be­fore March 23.

The dinosaurs are back, big­ger, more au­then­tic than ever.
