Storyline

A scientist wants to recover some mammoth DNA to clone a live mammoth. So he finds a buried mammoth in the vast, rock hard permafrost of Siberia, digs it out in the middle of a blizzard and flies it home. Of course he needed a little help. So he befriended an arctic nomad who knows ever rill, rock, pond and stream in the entire region. As background to the quest, National Geographic relates the migratory history of the mammoth family.

Fascinating
21 March 2002 | by (Melbourne Australia) – See all my reviews

Rarely do I find the time these days to watch a nature documentary but one day, I accidentally found myself hooked on this one.

Of course, I am fascinated by the idea that a perfect specimen of an extinct species has been found, preserved in hard, heavy permafrost of northern Siberia. A small team of men, with help from the local nomadic people, dug it out in between storms and lifted it, encased in the concrete-like ice, by helicopter.

See the mammoth. 4 out of 5.
