A year ago, scientists and explorers excavated the remains of a 20,000-year-old woolly mammoth from its frigid tomb in Siberia. LAND OF THE MAMMOTH is the exciting documentary that follows the ongoing search and discovery of new clues as to what scientists are learning from this very rare block of remains. The adventure begins as a team of international scientists start the defrosting process of the Jarkov Mammoth in the arctic chill of an underground ice cave. In the largest expedition to collect Ice Age remains, explorers spread out across the Taimyr Peninsula in a search for more specimens of mammoths and other species that shared his domain. The most recent findings from these and other initial studies, and the discovery of hundreds more prehistoric specimens, have begun to create a more vivid picture of what the woolly mammoth's world was really like some 20,000 years ago. LAND OF THE MAMMOTH has taken the findings one step further with life-like computer animation to put the viewer inside the mammoth's world as only Discovery Channel can.
