RE:Walking with Dinosaurs



I agree that the animation was incredible....

but with regard to budding paleontolgists......  It was broadcast on a
highly regarded SCIENCE channel.  With virtually no mention that these were
THEORIES being presented, the young ones (and older) accept what they see as
FACT!  It is a  lot harder for educators and professionals to dispute what
the Discovery Channel broadcasts.  Much easier to get around all the
mistakes in a major motion picture like Jurassic Park.....
