Anyone get an insert with "Walking With Cavemen"?

I bought my copy of "Walking With Cavemen" yesterday. The DVD has no insert. Has anyone else run into this?

Also, the disc is just packaged in a standard plastic case. All the others in the series (Walking With...Dinosaurs, Prehistoric Beasts, Allosaurus) had very extensive packaging and design.

I take it the BBC is winding down this series, given the half-hearted marketing of this latest installment. I was also very surprised that Warner Bros. is involved with the production of this disc and they used a plastic case, as opposed to their usual cardboard monstrosities.

Warner/BBC cases are Amarays.

See also: Father Ted, Coupling.

I also believe the Warner/NFL DVDs are amarays.

This might be a dumb question but is this the same as the Walking with Cavemen that is on the Discovery Channel? I ask because your talking about a BBC production.

I added it to the "insert" list linked by SCHMEGGA as "unconfirmed".

Picked up a copy early today at Best Buy - No insert in mine either. All it had was a small advertising / registration post card.

Yes, this is the same "Cavemen" that was just on the Discovery Channel.

All of the Walking With..... series were BBC productions, but they were shown on the Discovery Channel in this country. Not sure about the others, but I think Walking With Dinosaurs may have had a different narrator for the US airing.....

Walking With Dinosaurs did indeed have different narrators in the US and UK.

I would assume not also. IIRC, the other 3 dvd releases (WWDinosaurs, Allosaurus, and WWPrehistoric Beasts) all used the original UK narration.
