In 1998, a team led by a French archaeologist went to upper Siberia, following the tip that there may have been a woolly mammoth encased in the permafrost. The team was forced to rely on local nomads for help in locating the beast; the natives were the first to locate the mammoth's huge tusks. Fighting the unforgiving climate, the team only had a small window of time in which to work before the Siberian winter would stop them; indeed, they had to return the following year to unearth the gigantic prehistoric animal. Eventually they wound up airlifting out, with an enormous Soviet-era cargo helicopter, a huge block of ice with two tusks sticking out and a mammoth inside. In typically exhaustive Discovery Channel fashion, Raising the Mammoth not only follows the efforts of the determined archaeologists, but discusses the history and evolution of the mammoth, theories about the species' demise, and the possibilities of using mammoth DNA to produce clones with today's technology (shades of Jurassic Park). It's a fascinating look at what had to be an enormous struggle, one that paid off in terms of scientific knowledge and archaeological significance.
