Well, this time Bristol Zoo were unveiling their new Dinosaur Exhibit at Bristol Zoo Gardens and asked my colleague, Nick Ralph at Bristol Film Studios to source a Don LaFontaine film trailer style voice over: “…in a world where dinosaurs roamed…” etc. You get the picture.

Luckily, I’ve been doing this type of impression a long time so was happy to have a go, as a tribute to Don of course. The recording called for a very close mic’d technique and swallowing lots of sandpaper beforehand (not really!), but I think we did a really good job.

Dr Bryan Carroll director of Bristol Zoo, said: “It’s fantastic that the dinosaurs are finally here, it is amazing to see them close-up in all their glory – they are quite a spectacle. We are sure that DinoZoo will be a fantastically popular new attraction that will take our guests on a journey that started over 200 million years ago.”

See what you think…

Here’s the follow-up…

And, just for fun, here are the dinosaurs arriving at Bristol Zoo
