From the Canadian Burial Forest to the English coast, the journey continues at the company of Federico Fondi, an archaeologist and National Geographic explorer, to discover the secrets of some of the most fascinating animals ever to inhabit the earth. After meeting with Dinosaur Hunter: Italy Broadcast by National Geographic last September, the channel offers two new encounters in the original production Dinosaur hunter, Aired at 8.55pm: December 25, 2021 with Dinosaur Hunter: Mission Canada And with January 1, 2022 The Dinosaur Hunter: Mission Great Britain.
The Dinosaur Hunter: Mission Canada
Broadcast on National Geographic on December 25, 2021 at 8:55 pm. The Dinosaur Hunter: Mission Canada. In Canada’s vast burial forests, in Alberta, on some of the planet’s distant and wild rivers, some of the most incredible and mysterious fossils are hidden: called dinosaur mummies.
Dozens of dinosaur skeletons and numerous footprints emerge in the narrow valleys carved by the rivers. Precious fossils revealing massive migrations between the cold lands of Alaska and southern Canada during the time of the dinosaurs. But some of these skeletons reveal something unique: fossil dinosaur skin, a very rare phenomenon that offers new and unexpected scientific perspectives. The inventions that revolutionized the way we imagine dinosaurs and the work of paleo-illustrators can now more accurately “revive them”.
Federico Fondi’s journey continues through the lunar landscape with the luxury of the Badlands, vast valleys and forests. From dinosaur provincial park to open-air dinosaur skeletons, the Royal Tyrell Museum in Drumheller, the world’s dinosaur capital, is one of the most incredible fossils ever found. A dinosaur appears to have come from another planet, Boryalofelda, a complete mummy-made armored animal. Go to Edmonton to see together the unusual mummy of a baby dinosaur.
The Dinosaur Hunter: Mission Great Britain
Broadcast on National Geographic January 1 at 8:55 pm, The Dinosaur Hunter: Mission Great Britain. Between legends, sciences and great characters, archaeologist and national geographer Federico Fondi takes us on a journey to the United Kingdom, where archeology emerged as a field. The story of the dinosaurs develops here, and thanks to Nessie and Loch Ness the monster, their myth conquered the entire planet. The scientific discoveries made by the first dinosaur hunters in the 19th century led to one of the greatest scientific revolutions when the scientific method and research began to impose themselves against centuries-old myths and myths. Who Invented the First Dinosaurs? What exactly is a dinosaur? Spectacular sites intertwined with the history of those who wrote the first pages of the dinosaur hunt. We find out how the first dinosaur hunter was actually a young woman: Mary Annning, the first person to reveal to the world the incredible ‘sea monsters’ who ruled the seas during the time of the dinosaurs, ichthyosaurs and blizzards. Through the Wilderness Museum of London and the wilds of Scotland, the rocks sinking in the English Channel from the Jurassic coast to Europe telling the Lyme Regis. Following the Federico Fondi to the Oxford Museum and the Stonefield’s Lost Mines, we encounter the megalocorus, the first dinosaur ever described. The rocks sinking in the North Sea reach Siccar Point, the rocky area that reveals the true age of our planet, and we admire the spectacular 19th century Iron Bridge, the spectacular Forth Bridge, a perfect replica of the three great dinosaurs.
