Recent scientific research has led experts to hyptohesize that Dinosaurs became extinct some 65 million years after Earth was struck by an asteroid bigger than Mount Everest causing unimaginable damage around the world.

This Sunday, the Discovery World HD Channel kicks off Dino Week with the broadcast of "The Last Day of the Dinosaurs" in 3D.

The 90-minute special uses cutting edge CGI and 3D environments to portray how the asteroid's collision with the lead tore a path of destruction through every continent and triggered a bitter “nuclear winter” that led to a collapse in the food chain and global darkness.

The anaglyph 3D version will air on Discovery World HD channel and will require traditional red/cyan3D glasses. Free 3D glasses will be distributed to home delivery subscribers of the Globe and Mail on Thurs., Nov. 18 or they are available free-of-charge at select CTV stations. See the Discovery World website for participating locations and pick up dates and times.

The show is also available on the Discovery Channel in Standard definition and Discovery World HD in high definition. The show will air Sunday, November 21 at the following times and in the following formats:
  • 8 p.m. ET/PT on Discovery Channel (standard definition)
  • 8 p.m. ET/PT on Discovery World HD (high definition)
  • 9:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. PT on Discovery World HD (anaglyph 3D)
  • 9:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. PT Cable/Satellite 3D Barker Channel (active 3D)

Next up during Dino week, the Discovery Channel will air four episodes of "Prehistoric" which examines what four U.S. cities, Los Angeles, Denver, Dallas and Washington would have looked like at the time the dinosaurs roamed the Earth.
