He's back! A man wandered into the Italian Alps about 5,000 years ago and never returned--until his astonishingly well-preserved body was discovered by hikers in 1991. Return of the Iceman by Nova looks at the scientific research--and political controversy--that emerged from this spectacular find. Using CAT scanning and carbon dating, scientists were able to learn much about the man's health and lifestyle, from the tools he used to the foods he ate, giving us much greater insight into the life of our ancestors during the Stone Age. Much of the research was conducted in Austria, but after surveyors determined that the body was found in Italian territory, a small battle was launched to return the body to its "homeland." The research continues, however, and the outstanding science reporting we expect from Nova keeps us informed and amazed. --Rob Lightner
