Nature

Description

PBS's signature (and multi-award-winning) natural-history series uses gifted wildlife documentarians and stunning photography to reveal what its first host, Donald Johanson, called `the magic and mystery of the fascinating natural world.' The series has garnered numerous prizes, including the Sierra Club Award; and both an Emmy and a Peabody in 1987 for `A Season in the Sun,' a memorable portrait of East Africa by Alan and Joan Root. Its first show was the lyrical `Flight of the Condor.'

  • Raising the Dinosaur Giant

    David Attenborough chronicles the forensic investigation of an amazing find in the Argentinean desert: the fossils of a giant-sized, plant-eating titanosaur. The discovery was due to a shepherd who, while searching for one of his lost sheep, spotted the tip of a gigantic bone sticking out of a rock. The fossils, which date to 101.6 million years ago, point to the creature being the largest dinosaur thus far known. It measured 121 feet from head to tail and weighed over 77 tons. (60 minutes)
