June 2019
Bigger than T.Rex
Imagine a 53-foot-long carnivorous behemoth, a huge dorsal fin, scimitar-like claws and an army of teeth. That is Spinosaurus, a mysterious animal of which little was known—until now. (Film length: 60 minutes)

July 2019
Day the Dinosaurs Died
Most paleontologists believe that the reign of the dinosaurs ended 66 million years ago when I seven-mile-wide asteroid collided with the Earth. Scientists explore the fiery cataclysm, crippling tsumani and other effects and how they collectively doomed the dinosaurs. (Film length: 60 minutes)

August 2019
Dinosaur Wars
An epic battle between competing paleontologists Othniel Charles Marsh and Edward Drinker Cope in the late 19th century helped set the stage for the infancy of the study of prehistoric animals, and helped confirm the hypothesis of Darwin's new theory of evolution. The rivalry between both men was so intense that they ridiculed each other in public and in print, led to espionage and the destruction of fossils and ultimately left both men shattered and penniless. (Film length: 60 minutes)
