Planet Dinosaur[edit]

Nigel Paterson is producer, not director. See Barsoomian (talk) 09:51, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

You are badly misinformed. Nigel Paterson is the series producer AND director of planet dinosaur. Phil Dobree is a director of jellyfish a technical role... responsible for quality control and workflow for jellyfish... he is not the creative director is any film making capacity - Nigel Paterson had creative control and responsibility for all action, camera position, lenses or choreography, plot-lines and story... I was involved in this project for 2 years... and feel I have a better grasp of the situation....

Right. And I should take the unsupported word of Mr "" for this. You have to CITE A REFERENCE.
Wikipedia:No original research: "Wikipedia articles must not contain original research. The term "original research" (OR) is used on Wikipedia to refer to material—such as facts, allegations, and ideas—for which no reliable, published source exists.[1] This includes any analysis or synthesis of published material that serves to advance a position not advanced by the sources. To demonstrate that you are not adding OR, you must be able to cite reliable, published sources that are directly related to the topic of the article, and directly support the material as presented."
I am "badly [mis]informed" by the page I cited. Maybe it's all bullshit, but that's the ONLY reference I could find. Do better, but don't just assert it, PROVE IT. If you keep reverting without supporting references you will eventually be blocked as a vandal.
Unfortunately for you, truth is no defence. Barsoomian (talk) 12:06, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

Hello - perhaps I can help... I am Nigel Paterson series producer and director of Planet Dinosaur... user 208. etc etc - is correct in their assertions... as for reference - should it be needed - I can only suggest you look at the credits for the programmes... on i player... — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:36, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

And you are " ". Really, I have no way of verifying this, and I'm not in the UK, I can't use iPlayer. If you are such a big wheel, then please sort out what the BBC and Jellyfish say about the show on their respective pages and that can be cited and we don't have to take anonymous IP's words for what is or isn't true. I did look hard to find who were the writer and director (the "creative" credits normally listed for a TV show on Wikipedia) , BBC never mentions it at all that I can see.

hello again... does this carry any weight... ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:50, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

Not much, I'm afraid, IMDB lets any idiot add information to it. Plenty of completely fake information all over IMDB. See WP:RS/IMDB "content is user-submitted and often subject to incorrect speculation and rumor. The use of the IMDb on Wikipedia for referencing is considered unacceptable and strongly discouraged." Just get the BBC to amend their site and fix it then. Barsoomian (talk) 12:57, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

hmmm - Ok will get sites to correct ASAP. However, I notice that one of your citations... the BBC site has' Creative Director of Jellyfish Phil Dobree...' which should at least alert you to the partition between the roles of a company director and a Director in the film making sense... — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:18, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

I'm (personally) sure you're right, but again, it has to be verifiable. That was the only thing that looked like "director" I could find, and no "writer" mentioned at all, when I was trying to sort out the info in the article. I assumed that it meant in charge of "creative" work for the show, whatever that actually amounts to. Meanwhile, you may have noticed that there is a great deal of interest documenting the creatures shown in each show. If you could get the species listed on the BBC's pages for each episode as well it would save a lot of contention between dino spotters. Barsoomian (talk) 13:33, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

they will be updated after each show transmits... unverified as it is... the species for subsequent eps are: ep 4: Kimmerosaurus, Predator X. Ammonite spp,, Squatina (a shark), Allosaurus, Camptosaurus, Stegosaurus, Saurophaganax. unspecified azdarchid pterosaur, Ep5. Skorpiovenator, Chaoyangopterid pterosaur, Argentinosaurus, Mapusaurus,unidentified hypsilophodont (Notohypsilophodon), Paralititan, Sarcosuchus, Carcharodontosaurus, Ouranosaurus, Ep6. Hatzegopteryx, Magyarosaurus, Troodontid...genus...Bradycneme, Nothronychus, Zuni-tyrannus (vernacular name given to as yet un-named early tyrannosaur from Zuni basin), Gigantoraptor, unspecified oviraptorid, Alectrosaurus, — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:56, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

oh and citation used on Jellyfish page has now been amended... I am now down as Director/writer... — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:58, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, all good, article updated. You can contact me via my own talk page; or comment directly on the article on the articles' discussion page Talk:Planet Dinosaur. Barsoomian (talk) 16:12, 3 October 2011 (UTC)
