DESCRIPTION:
(from PBS's press release, July 2019) Today at the Television Critics Association Press Tour, PBS and WTTW Chicago announced PREHISTORIC ROAD TRIP, a new three-part natural history series that combines science, culture and history and brings viewers along for an unforgettable expedition through hundreds of millions of years of history. PREHISTORIC ROAD TRIP is hosted by popular YouTube personality Emily Graslie, Chief Curiosity Correspondent at the Field Museum. The adventure begins on PBS stations around the country in summer 2020. In PREHISTORIC ROAD TRIP, host Emily Graslie hits the road for a fun and fascinating journey around the Dakotas, Montana, Nebraska and Wyoming to explore 2.5 billion years of our planet's history. Each of the three episodes examines different eras in time, focusing on the geology, ecology and environment. To discover what the landscape may have resembled millions or even billions of years ago, Graslie examines the fossils of former plants and animals. On this immersive adventure, Graslie will uncover and discover the history of North American dinosaurs and other fascinating prehistoric creatures, including ancient fishes, mammoths and early mammals. Filmed in stunning 4K resolution, using state-of-the-art drone technology and featuring dynamic illustration graphics, the series will bring this now-extinct world to life.
