Mammoth Task

I viewed an utterly fascinating programme last night on BBC2, presented by Professor Alice Roberts PhD BSc MB.

I have a slight infatuation with dear Alice, despite only ever having seen her on television!

Nevertheless, the documentary in question was about the amazing discovery in Siberia of an intact juvenile Woolly Mammoth.

I relish these kinds of programmes and wish to see a lot more of them.

It is hoped that it might be feasible to extract the DNA from these extinct creatures, impregnate the sperm or egg into a female elephant and thus create the Mammoth again.

Alice has moved up a step to a Professor since she hosted episodes of Coast as a mere Doctor (PhD).
