Umm, yes. It is the British Broadcasting Company, the organization that
produces and broadcasts radio and TV for the UK (and for export elsewhere).
It is related to dinosaurs (and mammal) evolution in that they make
documentaries (often vastly better than a lot of the American network
produced ones, sad to say: they are willing to use the "e"-word and such...).
Sometime in the not-too-distant future, the BBC will be airing "Walking with
Dinosaurs", a documentary series on dinosaur evolution with a different
emphasis than your typical 'Bakker out in the field'-type. It is supposed
to eventually come to the U.S., although I'm not certain who is going to
distribute it and how.
