That's a great one, but I believe they actually have 4 episodes on it, one for the Cambrian-Silurian, one Ordovicion-Devonian, one Carboniferous, and one for early-late Permian. The insect episode is from the Carboniferous period and it is pretty awesome, and although the giant spider has since been found to have not existed (misinterpreted fossil evidence), the 8 foot long millipede-relative Arthropleura was a real creature... quite scary.

There is also a nice fake 'time traveling' companion to the series called Chased by Sea Monsters, the host explores the deadliest oceans in different parts of prehistory.

Walking with Dinosaurs is the more famous of the bunch, but there is also a series called Walking with Beasts that explores the mammalian period following the dinosaurs and is also quite entertaining. Though the "Walking with..." series sometimes exagerrates sizes and makes some minor mistakes, I think they do a good job of emulating what a nature documentary from past time periods would be like, all things considered. Plus, it's really fun if you like that type of thing.

I discovered this thread while looking for some place to promote the PBS American Experience documentary Silicon Valley which documents the rise of the semiconductor industry. It focuses on Robert Noyce, first while at Fairchild and later after he founded Intel with Andy Groves and Gordon Moore.

These guys changed the world in ways we have yet to fully appreciate or understand.
