The last Ice Age was one of the most challenging times on Earth. Using the latest CGI, this series explores the lives and deaths of the remarkable creatures that inhabited the planet.
 
Step back in time by just 20,000 years and the world is a very different place. Vast swathes of the northern hemisphere are covered by ice sheets, glaciers carve great valleys through the landscape and continents merge as sea levels fall. Immense hairy beasts and ferocious predators rule, while spectacular animals migrate across vast, unfamiliar landscapes. Alongside them, as both prey and predator, humans face their own challenges as they struggle to survive.
 
With unique access to some of the most spectacular excavations and state of the art forensic analysis, Ice Age Giants travels back to a land before time, unearthing ancient pieces of an elaborate jigsaw to reveal the Ice Age through the eyes of the animals that lived there.
