Dinosaurs on Ice
Recently screened on ABC 1 in Australia, Dinosaurs on Ice follows the extreme journey of Australian paleontologist Tom Rich and gold miner Bobby Fithian as they attempt to uncover the bones of dinosaurs trapped in ice for over 40 million years.
Working in harsh and dangerous conditions, the team use state-of-the-art technology and some good old fashioned explosives (dynamite) to create a mine in remote Alaska to uncover these remains that have been hidden away for millions of years.
The documentary is complimented with realistic CGI to give the viewer a true insight into the lives of these rare polar dinosaurs and although the documentary does focus on these ancient creatures, it also highlights the issues that this team experienced which not only stretched relationships but threatened some of their lives in the harsh climate of Alaska.
A gripping and engaging documentary that we could happily recommend to all viewers who are interested in dinosaurs or man's attempt to overcome the almost impossible.
