plant expert Dr Jane Francis of earth sciences will be
taking part in an excavation of fossil dinosaur sites
on the Isle of Wight, to be broadcast live on BBC2. The
programme, called Live from dinosaur island, will be shown
from Sunday 10 June to Friday 15 June at 8pm.
Isle of Wight is famous for its dinosaur fossils, and
the excavation will be using active sites
where fossils have already been located. Dr Francis will
be on hand to identify any plant fossils discovered, and
to talk about the ancient climates and environments which
existed on the island 120 million years ago.
