RE: When Dinosaurs Roamed America

I find that each has is better- or worse in its own way.

I feel the dinosaurs where slightly better in when dinos roamed (funnily enough there was no 'america' in the title when shown on Australain tv), but the way walking with dinos integrated them with their enviroment was far superior. 

One thing I dislike is deliberate mis-information, and in carefully thought out programes like these you'd have to say it was deliberate. What the hell am I talking about you ask? Well, how many 'polar Allosaurs', Muttuburrasaurs and leallynasaurs have been found in Antartica? When walking with dinosaurs came out, we Australians were devestated when walking with dinos came out and listed our lovely dinos as belonging to antartica.

Working at the NATIONAL dinosaur museum in Canberra, Australia, you have no idea how many kids every year we have to re-educate to the fact these were Australian, not Antartic dinosaurs...and yes I know it is more then likely that they were there, but as i pointed out, its the deliberate mis-information I don't like.

Perhaps its because we beat them at Cricket! - here comes all the 'world champions at union' emails! :)
