True to form, dad never talked to me about this exciting project, i.e. cooperating with the BBC to make a movie about dinosaurs in Utah and Colorado.  The only reason I know anything at all about this project is that there were a handful of letters from the BBC to him, and some from him to the BBC. They obviously talk about a movie but since each letter addresses only a small piece of the overall picture, I don’t really know much more than what they contain. I am not even sure of the name. I have see “The Great Dinosaur Hunt” associated with this Horizon progam and another name involving extinction of dinosaurs. I don’t know what the name was, but based on the dates of the letters, I can place the production clearly. It was in 1972
             WAIT A MINUTE......I found another title, and since it is on aformal billing document, I am going to assume that it is the actual, correct name:
