he widest possible audience in ground-breaking scientific research. MPH Entertainment, a Los Angeles-based film and television company that has produced more than 125 hours of primetime television programming, also provided seed money for the expedition.

Cosmos Studios has financed an MPH-produced feature-length documentary on the dig in the Bahariya Oasis. The documentary, titled "The Lost Dinosaurs of Egypt," will be first in an upcoming series of two-hour science-based entertainment specials broadcast on A&E Network. Cosmos Studios also intends to theatrically distribute the film prior to its television premiere.

Smith was joined in the research by Peter Dodson, professor of geology in Penn's School of Arts and Sciences and professor of anatomy and animal biology in Penn's School of Veterinary Medicine; Robert F. Giegengack, professor and chair of earth and environmental science at Penn; and Penn graduate students Matthew C. Lamanna and Jennifer R. Smith. Drexel University sedimentologist Kenneth J. Lacovara, Jason Poole of the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia, and Yousry Attia of the Egyptian Geological Museum in Cairo are also co-authors of the Science paper.
