Dinosaur TV Week

Here are some highlights of paleontology-themed U.S. 
national television programming, all times Eastern:

Monday, September 29

Discovery Channel, 8pm, 12am (technically Tuesday)
Wild Discovery: "Jurassic Survivors"
Modern relatives of dinosaurs, including birds.

Sunday, October 5

Discovery Channel, 10:30am
Bonehead Detectives of the Paleoworld
Children's program.  This week: "Attack of the Sea Monsters"

The Learning Channel, 10pm
The Mysterious Origins of Man
Taking time out from his pro-gun work, Charlton "Moses" Heston offers 
"new evidence!" on prehistoric man to indicate that long-held 
scientific theories may be incorrect.  Men riding dinosaurs.  Pet 
Rauisuchids.  Foraging for washed-up eurypterids by the 
shore (great with clarified butter, but then, what isn't?).  You 
know.  That kind of thing.

No Paleoworld?  Better get out Nostradamus --


I'm not interested in how dinosaurs lived
I'm just glad they're dead

Jack Horner as quoted by Dan Quayle
