You know what we need? a "Walking with Dino-Birds" docu

May be a bad time to toss this out
into the arena, what with some of the
folks who participated in the various
BBC/Discovery Channel specials at the SVP
congregation ...

What are the odds that:

1) The 'powers-that-pee ... er, be' would see
a general-audience interest and/or commercial
potential for it?

2) Can the various parties discuss the issues
in the sound-bites without getting too critical
of each other? [I think there's enuff BAND-vs.-theropods/cladists 
sumo-wrestling on the various forums already.]

3) How much promotion would be required to 
ensure it got a high ratings?  Would the 
professionals take that extra step in the
classroom, in the media, at seminars, etc., 
to promote it?

4) And most importantly, can you headlock the
producers so that they get the facts (or theories)
correct so that we don't have the equivalent
of a 150-ton liopleurodon in the presentation of the proto-development of birds?

I think this would be an exciting project.
Even if they could make a half-hour WWD Special like they did for Big Al . . .
