Jurassic Period CSI

Thursday, December 29, 2011

Early last year I completed filming a new series for the National Geographic Channel. The fruits of that labour are starting to appear on TV screens around the globe. This series is not just about palaeontology…although dinosaurs are clearly an important theme.

The series explores many new techniques in the earth, physical and biological sciences, from proteomics to particles physics, and from locomotion to geochemistry. The series would not have been possible without the support and collaboration of many scientists at the University of Manchester, but especially Roy Wogelius (SEAES), David Hodgetts (SEAES), Bill Sellers (FLS), Paul Mummery (Materials), Chris Martin (Materials), Phil Withers (Materials), Adam McMahon (Wolfson Molecular Imaging Centre), Terry Brown (MIB), Alan Crossman (FLS), Jon Codd (FLS), Mark Ferguson (FLS), Matthew Cobb (FLS), Lee Margetts (Research Computing Services) and the staff of the Manchester Museum.

The series will be transmitted in the UK from February 3rd (National Geographic Channel Wild), then in Canada, France, Russia, Turkey, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Asia (distributed through Taiwan Nat Geo), Spain, Portugal, Italy, Germany and South America National Geographic.
