The U Maryland library has a Umatic (YIKES!! I wonder how many of the
readers of the list remember that format) videocassette of it.  It had some
classic moments, and rather earlier ontogenetic stages and integuments (real
and clothing) of vertebrate paleontologists...

Incidentally, does anyone know of the National Geographic dinosaur
documentary associated with the dinosaur issue earlier this year ever came
out?  I don't get the NG Channel.
