"Digging Up Deep Time"
Saturday, May 28 2005, 5.30pm
presented by Dr Paul Willis (ABC TV Catalyst) and Abbie Thomas (ABC Science Online)
New from ABC Books, "Digging Up Deep Time" traces the rise of life from the oldest cells found in the Pilbara, to the massive megafauna buried in Wellington Caves, all revealed through visits to Australia's best fossil sites.
Join authors Paul Willis and Abbie Thomas as they paint a picture of Australia's earliest history and recount the rollicking adventures of our dinosaur hunters competing to find the most important new bones and to protect their discoveries.
Vividly illustrated with slides of fossils, excavations and reconstructions of extinct animals.
