New Documentary Series on Dinosaurs Premiering on Hope Channel

The Dig | Premieres January 3, 2020

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Hope Channel International has partnered with Southwestern Adventist University and the Dinosaur Science Museum to create a thought-provoking mini documentary series, The Dig.

The six-part series will premiere on January 3, 2020 as all episodes will be available to watch on- demand using the Hope Channel app. Episodes will also be broadcast weekly on DirecTV 368 and the Hope Channel website, starting January 3, 2020 at 9PM EST.

The Dig explores the experience of a group of Christian professors, scientists and students who spend a month of every year undertaking paleontological research in a remote part of Eastern Wyoming. The story follows a young scientist as he takes the baton of leadership from the founder of the project, Dr. Art Chadwick, an older geologist who is struggling to pass it to the next generation. The series shows the personal drive, cutting-edge research, and the many challenges faced by the most committed members of the group, some of whom have been involved for 20 years.

The goal of the series is to reveal the search for what the data shows regarding dinosaurs, through the lens of real people and their commitment to this quest.

“One of the highlights of the trip for many students is the spiritual aspect. We pray together, we have worships. In our course lectures, we emphasize not only the nature of the dinosaurs but also the aspects of Creation that are important to us all; because if Creation is not a valid account of origins, then neither is the sacrifice of Christ a valid account of Salvation,” said Dr. Art Chadwick.

The Dig will show that Christians need not be afraid of good science and allowing the data to speak for itself.
