RE: NOVA: Arctic Dinosaurs



Not the same show, but video and transcript of an (Australian) ABC TV
segment on Victorian south-polar dinosaurs (and mammals) at
http://www.abc.net.au/catalyst/stories/2366874.htm; Paul Willis talks with
Tom Rich, John Long, and Lesley Kool about Dinosaur Cove and Flat Rocks.

Is this the program with Tom Rich 'going troppo' (or whatever the polar
version of 'troppo' is), and 
the rabid fox that attacks the camp? The CGI wasn't too bad either.
