Coming into America ( Visual )
5 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This program highlights current research which is challenging the traditional theory of how people first came to North America in prehistoric times. It has been assumed that the Clovis, the oldest people to populate the continent, moved south from Alaska as Canadian ice sheets were breaking up. New findings by archealogists indicate people may have come from more than one place following a number of routes including a Pacific coastal route, a Beringian land route and an Atlantic ice route. Clovis culture and technology is discussed. New research findings by Dennis Stanford, Jon Erlandson, Michael Collins, Al Goodyear, Steve Holen and David Yesner are presented

A provocative behind-the-scenes look at scientific exploration, this program presents top scientists expressing their thoughts on the importance of a scientific method of research as well as offering evidence both for and against the claims made for "fringe" topics such as therapeutic touch, dowsing, graphology, palm reading, UFOs, and the possibility of building free energy machines
