The sequel to adventure dinosaur movie The Lost World that aired on Sunday, 27 April at 20h00.

Based on the novel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Return To The Lost World picks up from where The Lost World ended.

Synopsis from nytimes.com:

Filmed in the Zimbabwe jungles at the same time as its precursor, this sequel is set a few years after the six explorers journeyed into the Belgian Congo and discovered the isolated plateau where dinosaurs still thrive.

The explorers have regrouped because a greedy oil developer is threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem that supports the great beasts. Before they can effectively stop the rapacious oil company, they must first contend with the personality differences that again threaten to fracture the group's unity.

When the oilmen steal a baby stegosaurus, the expedition becomes more urgent.

Starring John Rhys-Davies, David Warner, Eric McCormack, Nathania Stanford, Darren Peter Mercer and Tamara Gorski.
