- Raising the Mammoth
In 1997, a family rounding up a herd of reindeer near the Arctic Circle made a remarkable discovery -- an entire woolly mammoth had been frozen intact in the ice, preserved much as it had been upon its death 23,000 years before. A team of scientists set out to recover the creature's remains, and two years later the beast was moved from its icy grave. The documentary Raising the Mammoth explores how this remarkable discovery was found, how the creature's body was removed and transported, as well as the ethical and scientific questions of what to do with the mammoth (including the possibility of cloning the animal, which is now within the realm of distant scientific possibility). Raising the Mammoth is narrated by actor Jeff Bridges. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
Many academicians scoffed at Jurassic Park as scientifically impossible, but the Discovery Channel documentary Baby Mammoth suggests otherwise. This program travels to the wilds of central Siberia, where a cadre of gold miners happens to unearth a baby mammoth, frozen and preserved in ice during the Pleistocene Era. The subthermal preservation of the animal's corpus enables scientists to study, in exacting detail, how the beast lived and died, and brings them to the surprising conclusion that DNA cloning of such a specimen might in fact become a concrete reality in the very near future. The program then speculates at length on the scientific basis for this possibility and its potential ramifications. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
