Coming soon: Fossil Detectives on BBC4

Have just noticed this post on the NatureWatch blog about Fossil Detectives, a new eight part series from the BBC Natural History Unit showcasing British fossils, fronted by geologist-cum-presenter Hermione Cockburn. The first episode will be on Thursday 21 Aug at 7.30pm on BBC 4, so if you are going on holiday, don't forget to set the video recorder. 

Lot's more information, including a free guide (if in UK) from the Open University Website:
