This show is really well done.  It really shows the relationship between the National Monument and the commercial fish diggers.  And so much more... Arvid Aase (pronounced Ow-suh; National Monument paleontologist and trilobite affectionado) is a gem out there. 

Full disclosure... I say this as a long time supporter of Wyoming Public TV and Radio, and I know a lot of the folks on the show.
