Dinosaur TV Week

Here are some highlights of U.S. national television
programming concerning dinosaurs (entinct and extant),
other prehistoric animals and evolution, from high art
to low trash and (hopefully) back again, all times
eastern (check local listings to confirm):

(This list includes a rump of the preceding week (I go
Monday to Sunday) in case you have nothing better to
do on New Year's than watch programs about dinosaurs
on television.)

Saturday, January 1

NBC-TV, 8:00pm

The New Explorers
"Fragments of Time; Mystery of the Lines"
Includes segment on Argentine dinosaurs.

Sci-Fi Channel, 11:00am
Mystery on Monster Island
Tycoon's son and scientist trapped on island with
dinosaurs, gold and a villian.  From 1981, possibly a
Hammer film(?).  Presumably preposterous, but I may be

Sunday, January 9

Discovery Channel, 9:30am

Apparently includes discussion of evolution of snakes.

Well, time to catch up with my millenial friends,
