Like some people have speculated here in this very thread. It could be that the History Channel thing is something completely different. Like you said why hype something "life changing" for the 25th when everyone has already seen it on the news a week before.

Some people seriously need to read up on their science.
This is a major big time deal because it answers one of the most profound scientific theories of our time.
The theory is we did not just appear out of thin air but instead evolved from other animals.
Ida being both a Lemur and a monkey millions of years before anything else we have in the fossil record is so far the top of the branch of where we came from. She proves that we indeed evolved from her, because we still share the same traits.
Ida is even more impressive because she has things that monkey and ape's have that we don't, and things ape's and monkey's do not have that we do.
Ida proves Darwin's theory.
Moreover, get away from this missing link mess because in all honesty if you go all the way back we are born from some particle held together by gravity.

But how can science prove that we evolved from Ida, rather than being a separate creation with similar features?
And if Ida evolved to monkeys and monkeys evolved to us... why do monkeys have missing features from Ida?
Sorry but it is very confusing

And heres a little something to tie the Publishing Company and book directly to the history channel. (Pretty Much the same descriptions)
Here is an excerpt from their ambitious sell-in sheet for UNTITLED by UNKNOWN, strictly embargoed until its release on May 28: "Lying inside a high security vault, deep within the heart of one of the world’s leading museums, is an extraordinary specimen that could be the most important scientific discovery of recent times. Fewer than a dozen experts know of its existence; its value to the world is inestimable. This is a discovery that will change textbooks, change science, and change how we understand the human race. The author of UNTITLED has been given exclusive access to all of the research and the team of top scientists who have been validating the discovery, the announcement of which will send shock waves around the world."
What i am wondering, is maybe both of the books have something to do with it...Who knows?
So, the peer review on this shockwave-worthy "discovery" was done by fewer than 12 people?

Found this on another thread here on ATS. Ida has her own webpage now. I put the link to "the film" area of the site. The film about her will be airing on History,BBC,ZDF,BBC world wide looks like they show a short clip from this doc.

And these kinds of publicity campaigns can backfire. In 2007, for example, the Discovery Channel ran a documentary called “The Lost Tomb of Jesus,” which had its share of detractors in the academic community.
Executives of A&E, which operates the History Channel, said they were mindful of that example, and were satisfied that the science behind the fossil discovery was solid.
