December Dinosaur tv

Since Larry is using the triangulation method for finding Bermuda, 
here are some December dinosaur tv highlights to watch for:

National Geographic Explorer
Sunday, December 13 - 7:00 p.m. EST
"Dinosaur Fever"
> Longer than a city bus.  Weighing close to 50,000 pounds.  Each
> footfall pounding the ground with a force greater than that of an
> eight-ton wrecking ball.  It's an adult sauropod, one of the dinosaur 
> giants and one of the largest land animals that ever lived.

> University of Chicago paleontologist Paul Sereno searches for the
> bones of the beast through the desert heat of the Sahara in 
> EXPLORER'S _Dinosaur Fever_.  Two colleagues who share the
> mission, brothers Jeff and Greg Wilson, unearth a skeleton of
> the titanic creature.  The quest culminates with a rare prize: a
> sauropod skull, delicate and easily destroyed, that housed a
> brain as big as a ...baseball.

Discover Magazine - December 23 - 9:00 p.m. EST
> Nature evolved skeletons to give bodies a solid frame, but their 
> durability has a side-effect: bones can provide valuable clues about 
> the life and death of the beings they once held together. Were two 
> accident victims really the targets of murderers? How did Neanderthals 
> hunt large animals? And were the dinosaurs really cold-blooded after 
> all? Their skeletal remains have detailed stories to tell.

This may be the program which features Luis Rey's paintings and 
restoration of  _Sinosauropteryx_.  If not, one is coming up soon.
