I saw most of the BBC "Horizon" programme which this BBC "news" item was really 
an advert for (missed a few bits, but will see it again when I play the video 
for my son). Though a popular science documentary doesn't go into the level of 
detail that people here would like, it was pretty explicit about the point that 
this was a single-species, mixed-age assemblage, and presented that as a 
refutation of the flood-carried or tar trap scenarios and thus as the clincher 
for Currie's theory.
