Recently screened on ABC 1 in
Australia, Dinosaurs on Ice follows the extreme journey of
Australian paleontologist Tom Rich and gold miner Bobby Fithian as
they attempt to uncover the bones of dinosaurs trapped in ice for
over 40 million years.
Working in harsh and dangerous
conditions, the team use state-of-the-art technology and some good
old fashioned explosives (dynamite) to create a mine in remote
Alaska to uncover these remains that have been hidden away for
millions of years.
The documentary is complimented with realistic CGI to give the
viewer a true insight into the lives of these rare polar dinosaurs
and although the documentary does focus on these ancient creatures,
it also highlights the issues that this team experienced which not
only stretched relationships but threatened some of their lives in
the harsh climate of Alaska.
A gripping and engaging documentary
that we could happily recommend to all viewers who are interested in
dinosaurs or man's attempt to overcome the almost impossible.
