Beginning over 200 million years ago, dinosaurs roamed the earth for a period estimated for about 115 million years dominating life on the planet until their mysterious extinction 65, million years ago. The earth was a much different place then with continents as we know them today just beginning to fragment for a much larger land mass. Africa was close to South America than was North America. There was no land bridge between North and South America. And earth in transition. Now in the 21st century four areas of the world seemed to hold the most clues to solving the riddles of earth’s ancient past, Mongolia, China, the great plains of United States and the Patagonia of Argentina, the area in which this program is focused. The Badlands of Patagonia and Yukon province stretched hundreds of miles across an arid rugged country side with the exemption of a few herdsmen attempting to eke out a living grazing sheep and cows. The only life you’re likely to encounter in the Badlands are a few earthy insects crawling across the sandy desert floor looking for who knows what or a prehistoric looking tortuous who looks as if it actually belongs here. True until a few years ago that is. Now, the treasures of Argentina’s Badlands each prehistoric creation are being explored, discovered and perhaps in some cases exploited. Across the semi arid landscape of Argentina’s Yukon province man just like oiled pumps bomb up and down delivering for some secret strata below precious liquid energy in demand worldwide. Vast reserves of oil and gas, the requisite hoards of drillers and support groups have created a boomed town atmosphere and what had been a small, quiet little village. Oil has brought no variety and are measured amount of prosperity to the region. The geology of oil country attracts another breed of explorers and adventurers in search of a commodity almost as old, perhaps more romantic and definitely not a sought after in the open market. Answers to the riddles of the earth’s ancient past millions of years ago, a time when dinosaurs roamed and ruled the land.
