This program presents some of the more recent ideas about dinosaurs that are gaining acceptance while following paleontologists searching for fossils over the decades in the Gobi Desert and New Mexico.

In depth look at extinct species hosted by Superman!
This one's a pretty hard thing to find. Had I not run into it during a video search, I never would have known that Christopher Reeve took part in something as this. The little learning show goes through many enactments created for the program, and looks at a few clips from movies depicting the ancient species. Reeve is nice, and well spoken with his commentary . Other elements include interviews with scientists and random fans. You won't find stuff like this anymore. Now, programs like this are almost as boring as a waiting room. Getting Christopher Reeve to host was a fun idea, and thusly, watching the historic facts is even better with Reeves' voice leading us on. A nice thing to watch with Reeves as himself, and just as entertaining as his definitive Superman. all in all, a nice little educational program, very big on reflecting the times and technology in that decade.
