  The Jurassic Period
this was the Jurassic Period, beginning approximately 210 million years ago and lasting for 70 million years of the Mesozoic Era.

  Filmtracks: Jurassic Park (John Williams)

Their purposes are obviously different: a bold and layered brass romp, aided by crashing cymbals and rolling timpani, introduce the audience to the island near the outset of the film, and continues to define the adventure associated with the park.
Viewers of the film are introduced to the "panic theme" relatively early in the film; in the latter half of "Incident at Isla Nublar," after a nasty little accident with a raptor, Williams presents the rolling woodwind panic theme, often performed in the depths of the section.

 DVD Review - Jurassic Park   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Since "Jurassic Park" is also released as a separate version featuring a DTS audio track, I decided to give that version also a good check up to see how it compares to the Dolby Digital version, and it yielded some unexpected surprises.
The DTS version of "Jurassic Park" does not contain the preproduction footage or the photo gallery with storyboard that is part of the Dolby Digital version, and Philt Tippett’s animatics are also missing from this release.
"Jurassic Park" is something of a landmark for DTS as it was the first movie featuring the sound format during its theatrical release and you would expect nothing but the best audio presentation.
