This is one entry in a five-part series produced by The Learning Channel and narrated by Jeff Goldblum of (#Jurassic Park) -- an account of the search for fossil evidence of prehistoric life throughout the world and a depiction of the probable history and habits of dinosaurs. The focus of this episode is Africa, where 200 million years ago, vast areas that are currently sun-parched desert provided more survivable habitats. The production includes accounts of scientific explorations and fossil-hunting expeditions such as the century-long quest for a legendary creature, Mokele Mobombe, which led to the discovery of the first evidence of dinosaurs' existence south of the equator. Enhanced 3-D animation enlivens the gargantuan beasts, depicting them as flesh-and-blood creatures in "real life" situations. The DVD is interactive, allowing the viewer to jump from place to place for comparison. A trivia quiz is included for those who want to commit the information to memory.
