The Hobbit Enigma is on ABC1 tonight at 8:30. I like to think of this as retrospective mythology. Tolkien creates the myth of the Hobbits, science finds a very small skeleton and dubs it a Hobbit. The ABC blurb:
The Hobbit Enigma forces us to ask the most difficult question of all - what does it mean to be human?
There has also recently been Dracorex Hogwartsia, a new dinosaur species whose name is inspired by the Harry Potter series.
