Paleontology fascinates students of all ages. This series presents an in-depth look at what is known,
and how we know it. Each program reveals a bit more about what has been learned to fill in a fossil
record that is still far from complete, using recent discoveries, new techniques and computer
animation to enlighten your student's fascination.
A complete study of the world of the Paleontologist, this series of 15 programs reviews the latest discoveries
and explores what they mean. Go to the digs and the labs to visit the world as it once was.
This program explores how we survived, the gaps in our knowledge,
and our evolution.
High-tech medical equipment is now letting us see inside the head
of a T.Rex and into the unhatched embryos of dinosaur eggs.
New discoveries are revealing the story of how we evolved into
apes that walked.
