    There is some interesting footage of cave diving in Yucatan. PBS Nova, "First Face of America". I was watching it at 9pm EST on PBS. Schedule shows other times coming up. Also on PBS site here:

    It's got some cool footage. You can't dive there anymore, they've blocked it off unfortunately.

    It's on Netflix in the US. I watched it a few nights ago, it's got some good cave diving footage.

    Saw it, very interesting, including the diving. We keep pushing back the estimated introduction of humans in the Americas.

    Since were on the topic of PBS science shows, there was one a few weeks back about evolution - I forget the name.

    In any case, one of the subjects was crocodilian evolution (I didn't know that the Earth was once basically all crocodiles - whale-like crocodiles, wolf-like crocodiles, even deer-like grazing crocodiles).

    Footage of a cave diver retrieving ancient crocodile skulls from a cave in Madagascar. Pretty cool, although not as extensive as the Face of America show.
