PBS’ hit science series NOVA is going prehistoric.
PBS will release NOVA: Bigger Than T. Rex on DVD next month. The DVD will be released Tuesday, December 9th. The program focuses on paleontologists’ discovery almost a century ago of a dinosaur that was even bigger than the king of the dinosaurs, the T. Rex. The dinosaur, dubbed the Spinosaurus, was almost lost to the ages due to a bombing raid by allied forces in WWII. The near complete destruction of the dinosaur’s bones left only drawings of the beast , leaving researchers with more questions than answers.
Many of those questions left by the partially destroyed skeleton are now being answered thanks to the recent discovery of a new skeleton in a Moroccan cliff face. In this new episode of NOVA, audiences will see the processes undertaken by paleontologists as they dig out the skeleton of the 53-foot-long creature and answer those questions previously left unanswered. The episode is presented in partnership with National Geographic.
NOVA: Bigger Than T. Rex will be available on DVD Tuesday, December 9th. It will retail for MSRP of $24.99. It can be ordered online direct from PBS’ online store at http://www.shoppbs.org/product/index.jsp?productId=50703646&cp=&sr=1&kw=bigger+than+t.+rex&origkw=Bigger+Than+T.+Rex&parentPage=search.
