Re: Dinosaur Revolution (formerly Reign of the Dinosaurs) airs September 4 & 11
"exotic mating dances (Gigantoraptor)"? What about the children who
might see this? It may not be the correct political climate to show such
things. Can't we please see more wholesome and respectful dancing in
this program? Maybe something, oh say, hadrosaurian?

DINOSAUR REVOLUTION'S ALL-STAR CREW OF ANIMATORS AND ILLUSTRATORS TO
RESET STANDARD FOR DINOSAUR STORYTELLING
-- Stunning Four-Hour Series Premieres September 4 on Discovery
Beginning September 4, Discovery Channel's four-hour series DINOSAUR
REVOLUTION will reset the standard for immersive, inside-out
dinosaur storytelling, giving an insiders' view into the private
lives and strange behaviors of dinosaurs, with a narrative technique
as revolutionary as the science it documents. DINOSAUR REVOLUTION
will premiere Sunday, September 4 and Sunday, September 11 from
9-11PM ET/PT each night.
DINOSAUR REVOLUTION combines the talent of the world's best dinosaur
illustrators and animators with the latest paleontological research
and the best of Hollywood storytelling. Presented with sparse
narration and the latest cutting-edge animation and computer
generated storytelling techniques, the series will feature
never-before-seen intimate behaviors to illustrate the extraordinary
life of dinosaurs, dropping viewers directly into the Prehistoric era.
A host of new behaviors will be featured throughout the series,
including exotic mating dances (Gigantoraptor), the inner workings
of T-Rex's nuclear family (Tyrannosaurus Rex) and the underwater
birthing of Mosasaurs. The series will also introduce new creatures
like a Jurassic flying squirrel (Volaticotherium) and frogs so big
they could eat dinosaurs (Beelzebufo).
DINOSAUR REVOLUTION is produced by Creative Differences for
Discovery Channel. Erik Nelson is executive producer for Creative
Differences; Alan Eyres is executive producer for Discovery Channel."
