The BBC’s Digging for Britain programme team and film crew joined the BRP in Week 2 of the 2010 season, filming with us and with Dr. Sarah Groves of Durham University for the four-part documentary series that’s been exploring and reporting on some of most important digs in the UK this summer. The BRP featured in tonight’s episode and we’d love to know what you made of us! If you didn’t catch it this evening or would like to watch the programme again, you can see it or download it on iPlayer for the next few weeks.
We had a really busy summer with UK media. The BBC’s Countryfile team featured us in an episode that investigated the Northumberland landscape, and Channel 4’s Time Team filmed a programme with us later in the season. This will air sometime in the Spring of 2011 – watch this space for further details in the New Year.
In the mean time, if you’re interested in learning more about the items featured in Digging for Britain visit our main website. You can also find out more about Dr. Groves’ work in the Bowl Hole Cemetery, as well as further links to publications and details of forthcoming books at the Durham University website.
