I wasn't expecting this Discovery Channel docudrama to be so compelling! The actors were very good, (even though the girl Zia seemed a little too modern). The special effects of Wooly Mammoths were excellent. And the story - of Ice Age Europeans marooned on an ice floe that floats them to the New World, was highly educational. The entire story was extrapolated from one prehistoric arrowhead found embedded in a Virginia creek bed and dated to be over 17,000 years old! This stunning find contradicts the notion that America was discovered by Asians. The writers used French cave paintings to imagine who might have crafted that arrowhead (which matches European arrowheads from the same era) and how Europeans might have crossed the Atlantic. But instead of taking a strictly scientific approach, they wrote a story of murder, politics, family, and love which is surprisingly entertaining. Definitely worth watching but try and find it without the numerous commercials that Discovery inserted.
