NOVA: Alien from Earth: Premiering November 11 at 8pm ET/PT on PBS (check local listings). After researchers uncovered tiny and bizarre human fossil bones on the island of Flores in Indonesia, a furious scientific debate arose over what the “hobbit” remains represent. NOVA presents exclusive coverage of the first investigations of the cave site where the discovery was made and shows the varied hypotheses about the origins of “hobbit.” Pictured: Two lower jaws (mandibles) found at the dig site in Flores, Liang Bua. The Hobbits� teeth give important clues to its origins.
