The first series consisted of four episodes, initially broadcast on BBC Two in August and September 2010. A second series of four episodes was broadcast in September 2011. Each episodes of first two series had covered archaeology of specific period. The programme returned as a series of three episodes on BBC Four in February 2015, covering the previous summer's investigations in specific geographical region of the United Kingdom in each episode. Each episode of this series was hosted in a regional museum. The same format as in series 3 was adopted for series 4 and 5, which first aired in March and December 2016, respectively. There was also a programme Digging for Ireland linked to the series [4] which had the same format and presenters as series 5; it was broadcast in February 2015. A sixth series of the programme began airing in November 2017, returning to the four-episode format (covering three geographical regions plus one special theme). This structure was retained for series 7 and 8, which aired in November 2018 and 2019 respectively. Four episodes titled The Greatest Discoveries aired in 2020. It returned for its 9th series in January 2022. [5] Fancy something fresh? This series follows our iconic excavation on Lindisfarne. Yes there are discoveries, and yes there is drama. But most importantly, there are the stories of the people who do the dirty work – the archaeologists themselves. It’s archaeology for the Netflix generation! Available on: DigVentures Digging Up Britain’s Past Every year, hundreds of archaeological digs from across the British Isles find clues that add to the great historical jigsaw of Britain’s story and our ancestors’ lives. In this series, archaeologists across the country have been given Dig Diary cameras to record their extraordinary discoveries as they happen, and Alice joins them on some of the most spectacular digs. From Neolithic hand axes to World War II fighter planes, elaborate Roman keys to Saxon swords, the rich history of the UK is revealed and examined like never before. The series sees the team visit Newcastle in search of a Roman fort, as well attempting to unearth the long-lost Lenton Priory in Nottingham. In North Yorkshire, they must dig deep in the hope of locating a Viking graveyard, and they’re also on the hunt for a secret army base in South Shields.
