Enjoyed Tony and the whole crew, felt like u were part of the dig and part of the crew, they were all like family. I am 81 & have watched & enjoyed TT for many years. Time team has been a part of tv watching since its beginning . Please bring together the old team Mick, Phil, Carenza, John, Francis and Stewart. It is hardly surprising that I rarely watch TV these days apart from repeats of old favourites thank goodness we still have 20 years worth of repeats. Tim Team has finally brought British history into focus for me. The only thing that surprises me is that they didnt include a so called comedian. An audience study in 2006 indicated that 20 million people watched at least one show that year. TT is very fun to watch after nearly 30 years from the first episodes; watching the GeoPhysics change from season to season (week to week for me as I binge) is great for this engineer. Who made the decision to axe time team but it is a mistake they will regret. Its our favoite show. And they have taken it off and broken up a brilliant team. I was digging my veg patch yesterday and I found a napped piece of flint. This would be the only way of successfully reincarnating Time Team and fixing your pathetic and ignorant and unsuccessful changes. I will miss it desperately and want to say thank you to them all.. What a fantastic 20 years Bye bye Tme TeamI will care for Phils hat .. Goodbye, Time Team, and thank you. Time team came back as a clear favourite, so for one of the national conferences we decided to contact Time Team so that Tony or one of the team could come along and give a talk. British Television just one more nail in your coffin. Enough said. This once innovative and ground breaking channel has started to descent to almost ITV 1 depths of dumbing down in recent years, it certainly isnt the channel that Jeremy Isaccs created anymore. Its like having a child grow up and leave home The cast felt like family that I would visit each weekend and even my 11 year old daughter enjoyed it so much she joined a young archaeologists club. paleo-osteology, finds experts, experts in the Bronze Age or Rome I am as raptured as Phil squatting in a newly opened trench exclaiming, Oooh! Hi. He said: We were very sorry to see Mick go, and he leaves an extraordinary legacy. While I mourn the loss of Time Team, I think its death is a natural, organic thing that was simply going to happen sooner or later. very sad day that channel 4 are taking time team off the air.when time team started my husband and watch the show and we were hooked from then on. I will miss it & Sunday afternoons will not be the same-Im all for a petition -there arent many programs on now that are educational & family viewing with no risk whatsoever of offending anyone, there are too many reality programs these days & that seems to be what the young people are watching. We NEED Time Team. (a bit of eye candy maybe if your of that age) Sad to see this very good program going down the pan. My wife was not well for several years & she found Time Team to be one of the few programs worth watching. For how many years were John Gater and Stuart Ainsworths technical expertise presented as a pat cliche when the work of either could have been expanded? I learned so much, as many others have, and admired the way it brought archaeology to everyone. Bringing in that awful woman for the last series was the straw that broke the camels back. Thank goodness there is a myriad of viewers who appreciate the achievement of Time Team. Some of the regulars have retired, some have moved on to other things, a few have departed for Tr nan g or the Field of Reeds. Rest in peace, Mick, you added more to peoples lives than you probably ever realised. There is a focus on interesting, previously discovered, artefacts, while pipe music lends an almost mystical air to proceedings. We only recently discovered the Time Team show and rush to ensure we dont miss a show. We totally agree with Nick Robinson, we too will be enjoying repeats and cursing Channel 4!. But it just goes to show how Time Team in ingrained in our family! There may be mosaics, a bathhouse and perhaps even temples. All of the team can be proud of 20 years of quality television and the many lives touched and informed. A great series, I still watch old repeats and will enjoy them for a long time. Lets hope that BBC4 takes up the genre. Such mass-production was only possible with more rigorous processes guiding filming. To an incredible all round team we thank you and to Phil damn we will miss you! I have watched Time Team from the beginning and love the earlier episodes and although its sad that its going it has changed considerably.Not the same without Mick his enthusiasm makes for great watching. Ridiculous. This did happen in fact, but the show kept going with Mick Aston and (Sir) Tony Robinson always at the helm. They managed against terrific odds.and that gave me a good feeling ! The dig has only found old bits of pipe and 1950s china, but it really does not matter, what matters is the program has inspired my children. C4 what are you doing timeteam is a great show now u r going to put more rubbish on like big brother I know it not on your channel no more what a shame timeteam will b missed go on bbc take it on, Timeteam what a great show now we got to put up with shows like splash and x factor what is going on with tv now god help. Totally gutted Time Team is going. Its amazing. Many of us have watched Time Team for ages and have been educated (along with Tony) on the ins and outs of Archaeology and did not need another presenter to ask superfluous questions (nice though she was). I just love the way English history came alive & feel like the team must have lots of fun doing this job.I was hopeing to find them on a dig when I come over to visit .Lets hope the powers that be decide to bring it back or make a new show similar to it. In South africa we have seen so few TT programs and when in the UK on holiday I imediately check for surren programs to watch. One of our students is well into his 70s, hes been in the field with us both on our formal field school and in a volunteering capacity. Having said that, I hope this means Time Team DVDs will now be more available to those of us in the US who adore the show. I met Phil Harding a few years ago at old sarum castle, Salisbury, we had a lovely chat, hes a fab bloke. I have watched every episode from season 1, some many times. Seeing an entire brigade of scientists down at the pub for lunch made the show so human and readily acceptable. I will think of you when I am digging in a field this afternoon, that you once dug, and bury a memento in your memory. The programme has no need for eye candy, no need to try to attract yuppies: archaeology is like genealogy interest grows (although not exclusively) with age. Save Time Team Campaign is taking off really fast now, over 1,500 signatures & support from celebrity. I wonder if channel programmers read these blogs? How amazing to see the history of England being unearthed. How many people can look back on a twenty years span of such a masterful contribution to human culture? Most days, I have been watching the TT repeats on More Four in the afternoons. And now our children and grandchildren watch the programme but not for long now. What about the good time team has done? He completed his undergraduate and Master's degrees at the Institute of Archaeology, University College London before embarking on a career in commercial archaeology. Far too many highlights to choose a favourite, but Ill always have a soft spot for the tone of Tony Robinsons voice when he explained that the sash-cum-swordbelt worn by Saxon fighters was called a baldric. I want Time Team brought back. With 1.5 million views a month on the Time Team Classics YouTube channel in 41 countries worldwide, the new programs will premiere on YouTube, with additional behind-the-scenes content on the platform Patreon. Brought up 3 kids on it. Im writing this having just had my daily lunchtime fix of a Tiime Team repeat on More 4. Didnt like the changes either to the team it change the dynamics of the program but kept watching anyway. Mick, can I come work for you? John Gater, Francis Pryor, Stewart Ainsworth, and Phil Harding. Meet the Ancestors was also a good programme we need more Archaelogy programmes on TV. The obvious situation is that if it kept to the original cast ( which it did not ), then there would be a problem immediately when someone left, or passed on. I cant help being captivated by the digs. Come on BBC . Inspiring stuff. I therefore conclude that the program is enjoyed by audiences of all ages. Stewart has always been my top hero too, although I loved everyone without exception till the changes happened. You were apparently watching a different show than we were. Ive learned that anything classed as experimental Is just filler as theyve found nothing. How about a petition to Channel 4 demanding its continuation? Is Phil Harding a Phd? RESURRECT THE PAST! I think Phil is a genius at being able to read the ground he is digging up. Best wishes, good luck and Gods speed to the lot of you! Mary Ann Ochota qualified or not added nothing substantive unless the viewer was starved for gratuitous cleavage shots and huge white beaverish teeth. The explanation for the end of Time Team is that the people who run Channel 4 are all about 12 years old. Do specials instead of a series. Restructuring, avoiding dumbing down, possibly making it a shorter programme all could help. Bringing history to life is far from an easy task but the combination of the experts knowledge, Tony Robinsons ability to act as the interested layman asking questions that the audience wanted to know the answers to, as well as the interaction and camaraderie between the members of the team I felt worked really well. It will be sorely missed. I think weve brought it into the forefront of peoples attention. Judged a misfire by Channel 4, it could have been the end. You can never run out of history in Britain. Interested in keeping up to date with the latest archaeological finds across Britain? He joined the Royal Commission on the Historical Monuments of England (now part of English Heritage) in 1985, and is now head of its Landscape Investigation Team based in York, England. I am one of the over 40s over 60 in fact. As Francis Pryor observed on his blog, in many ways the real question is what went right?. I once heard Mr Harding say Oh arr. I think Tony is a good fit for this program. So so sad, the only one of its kind and they axe it. Yes/No? Hello from the US. Leave it to an insular management team to screw it up. with the Amazonian co-presenter with the huge bonded teeth. But once the old hands started to disappear the magic went too. A relative alerted us to Time Team knowing.my husband and I were long term enthusiasts. Ok BBC4, its time for you to take Time Team. Gee I feel gutted. Such a great programme. What an absolutely stupid decision to ax Time Team! Im 77 and was taught English history at boarding school, but Time Team has made it come alive and with so much meaning. | Phoenix the Dreamer, https://digventures.com/2013/03/tools-down-for-time-team-raksha-dave-on-the-end-of-an-era-and-her-new-adventure/, Current Archaeology Award Winners for 2023 announced, The peaceful Neolithic is dead: the dawn of agriculture coincided with rising violence, Scars of early Civil War battle found at Coleshill Manor. Meanwhile Tonys role transformed from a quiz master to translator of all things archaeological for a general audience. Jim describes this miscalculation as a death blow, which cost the show almost all of its behind the scenes staff. It is located on the Broughton Estate in Oxfordshire, belonging to the Fiennes family. Changing all the staff behind Time Team was a big mistake, but ending it is even bigger. What proved to be the fateful conversation took place in a Little Chef on the Okehampton bypass. By the way, if the executives mild revamp caused viewer figures to plummet, how come it was the programme and not those executives who got the flak? Congratulations to all concerned on a great program. Time team is irreplaceable. Wasnt TT the only reason to watch Channel 4 ? Thank you to everyone who made this such a wonderful programme. Arrr! We are headed to the UK in May from the US to see some of the TT sites. The same has been witnessed with the BBC. NON of these corporations do they think we are all idiots who will do as they as told like little children in school!!!!! To anyone who loves the Sunday afternoon history fix as much as I do PLEASE sign! Such a shame its being axed at a time its claimed the viewing figures are at its highest make little sense to me. Maybe after all these replies BBC4 may approach the original team !!! Gutted to learn it is no more. Tony was very good at being the non-archeologist and I salute him! In the immediate aftermath of a programmes cancellation it is traditional to attempt a post-mortem of what went wrong. The Time Team go to the West Indies and the island of Nevis. In all fairness thank you C4 for having the foresight to do the programme in the first place but put the money saved back into culture, dont invest it in any more fly on the wall or the only way is type of programmes or you may just lose any of the credibility youve gained. Your contribution to TV and Archeology is now history itself! Like Concorde, should be rescued by someone BBC and revamped ASAP. Hi Serena, you can find a complete episode and series guide of all 230 programmes plus the specials on this website: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Time_Team_episodes Plenty more to come for you yet, if only More 4 would stop repeating the same episodes over and over again and show some of the others they could keep you (and the rest of us) happy for years to come. Now everyone knows the word geophys. I watch time team on more 4 That way we still get our fix when we want to remind ourselves how good this series was. Shame!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Channel Four seem to be missing a trick that gthe BBC would have undoubtedly have profited from by issuing DVDs of the most important digs over the years. BBCs own channels will have BBC prefixing the number and anything not by the BBC will obviously by without this prefix. Whats wrong with cozy? Maybe the BBC can resurrect this show. The pair bonded on the idyllic Greek island, where Micks aptitude for breathing life into the past convinced Tony that archaeology had untapped television potential. Tony admitted a number of times that he is not an archeologist. Many episode are available free on veehd.com. My politics are not Tony Robinsons or Mick Astons, but both deserve warm congratulations for what they did for archaeology and viewers over two decades.Tony Robinson seems to be largely responsible for the successful populist formula, the zest and the humourand the succinct resumes to stop viewers getting flummoxed., He deserves a knighthood but presumably he would just wrinkle his nose. i never knew this show was available as the colonies never mentioned it. I have been binge watching on YouTube whilst laid up with a medical issue. Incidentally, Mr Harding, this flygirl will gladly buy you a pint, any day and would love to hear stories about years of pulling history out of the ground one piece, one bone, and one shard at a time. I so agree. here was atransfixing series, turning elitist subject into everyday knowledge for the ordinary man. I was sad to see Carenza leave and sad to hear of the death of Robin Bush. After playing a critical role in many of Time Team's digs, from the caves of Cheddar to the jungles of Nevis, Mick . I have only lately discovered time team and I love it I record as many episodes as I can and I think all of the cast make the show I was never interested in archeology but I am addicted now just watchedthe Salisbury plain one with the soldiers who are coping with life and one said that watching TT helped hime to relax and began to enjoy life again We range in age from 8yrs to 82yrs and have loved Tony, Mick, Phil, Carenza, Helen, Faye, geophys John and most of all Stuart. So, Ch4 why did you do away with this gem of a program? Spoilt in the end by Fixing something that want bust. (Bog Latin). Sir Tony can do no wrong with me. Were back thanks to the overwhelming support of our fans!. Time Team - Mick Aston (1946-2013) Mick Aston (1946-2013) Archaeological Consultant Professor Michael Antony 'Mick' Aston was Time Team's much-loved Archaeological Consultant. Keep the show going its fantastic Ive been watching it as long as I can remember I agree the lady they brought in for Series 19 was disappointing and that it does show how far C4 has come in the last 20 years. . Inever felt patronised and loved the interation beteen Tony, Phil and Mick. Years earlier, Sir Mortimer Wheeler did some Archaeology pgms on TV and they were always popular. I know we have no Roman history, but there are thousands of of places that date back thousands of years. Poor second best but something is better than nothing. After a career as a professional geologist I researched for a PhD at the Palace of Knossos on Crete. Rip, time team. And anyway, why would we want Channel 4 to keep TT? Yet time and time again they did it with grace, charm, humor and knowledge. But the professor, 65, said that changes to the programme which have led to the introduction of co-presenter Mary-Ann Ochota and the dropping of some archaeologists had left him really angry. Fabulous, thank you. We are a large audience. Lytham St Annes. I have watched Time Team over the years. I owe a debt of gratitude to the wonderful Time Team ensemble. The key participants deserve a rest at their age, and the joy obviously just wasnt there. The thrill of time running out also engaged viewers, and Time Teams popularity was rewarded with increasingly longer series. Apart from the marvellous people who made up the Time Team over the years, the way they used the magic of television to highlight features of the dig, overlay geophys visualisations onto the site, extend a fragment of a pot into a full representation, and so on, made this program an exemplar of how to produce truly educational television; and the way the passion of the Team members and their expertise was allowed to shine, coupled with a witty front man, showed that educational does not have to mean dull or dumbed down. Stewart Ainsworth (born 26 June 1951) is a British archaeological investigator who was regularly seen on Time Team, the Channel 4 archaeological television series. I have loved Time Team since episode 1, and have never, not once, missed an episode. When I get a chance I watch the repeats on More 4. The site is of national importance and we couldnt hope for a better team to help uncover its secrets., Time Teams return has had the backing of many celebrity fans, from Sir Michael Morpurgo and Bernard Cornwell to Philippa Gregory, Kate Mosse and Ken Follett. these idiots decide to change it.i hope they are happy boring peaple.please bring it back. .As always it will, I supposed be replaced by some run of the mill program, American sit com or soap. Please read. , Totally agree have enjoyed this programme since it started. Beautifully expressed, Andrew. Bring them back ! If you had to justify the value of television as a medium that can inform as well as entertain, Time Team would be the perfect example. This is not the present series I wonder where you are watching? I first came across it a few years back while channel surfing Hey I know him thats Baldrick. Thank God for my Saturday morning lie-in watching four episodes in a row on More 4. And there is still so much they can show and teach us. I have watched Time Team from day one, and now my 11 and 9 year old daughters love to watch it, in fact my youngest commented she would like to be an archaeologist when she grows up, and this is from watching Time Team, I cannot believe Time Team has been axed, its a national institution. YOU HAVE JUST NOT THOUGHT THIS THROUGH! When Time Team came along, I got absolutely hooked on it. I learn so much. So disappointed to hear the show has been axed. The past shows took it for granted that the viewers were intelligent and did not need someone (other than Tony I love him) to ask questions in his humorous fashion. I hope that someone has the sense to resorect TT even if it is repeated from the beginning. IT DID NOT NEED JAZZING UP. i believe everything has a lifespan, and that must include television shows. Well Done Time Team, sad to hear you are soon to be no more. I dont think I could stand watching Phils grotty hat for one more season. Much has been said about this show on this site but I think that all of you would be best served by reading what Raksha had to say. Stranger things have happened! Just discovered that this had been axed. Twelve months on and I still miss it. I have offten mention to my husband, I wonder what the site look like after the the TT have left. Time Team return, Time Team is coming back, Following the successful launch of a fan-led Patreon campaign in December, Time Team has now confirmed what could be the first of many digs. I would love to see as many of the team as posible brought together for specials or even to tell us what they are involved in now. I also never felt patronised by Tony Robinson, and loved the way he frequently asked questions that the audience would have wanted to know themselves. Expertise honed over 15 years was lost at a stroke, to be replaced by crew and production staff who knew neither each other nor archaeology. You can find her message at https://digventures.com/2013/03/tools-down-for-time-team-raksha-dave-on-the-end-of-an-era-and-her-new-adventure/. Time Team has sometimes been accused of peddling stereotypes to the public, but anyone who has met the archaeologists will know that they are not cynical media-savvy operators adopting false personas for the camera. What idiot made this particular decision to cancel such an interesting and educational series! So why could it not continue on and evolve in 2013 ? Rather than targeting the palaces and castles of the rich and famous, individual episodes modestly sought to solve simple, local questions. Despite their varied talents and backgrounds it quickly became apparent that the team had a natural chemistry. I enjoyed Time Team and I will miss it Carenza and the later Helen Geake were the highlights for me there was always a sense of tension when you heard a shout of Tony not knowing what find theyd unearthed. While I wont be involved in the new sites, I was delighted to accept the role of honorary patron of the Time Team project. while the Facebook page is slowly building! His role translating archaeology into laymens terms was pure genius. With the archaeologists at the height of their game, by now the team was so confident of the three-day regime that development producer Jim Mower describes their appearance on site as like getting the A Team in. As an aside seeing your label Non-Richardian Yorkist what are your feelings about the parking lot discovery? The more TV appeal execs tried to inject, the less people wanted to watch. I feel like i know all of the presenters personally they had that effect on people.I watched it evolve over the years and couldnt wait for each knew series. It is obvious to me that they were always working on their format and that Tony was the TV guy while the others were the science folks. I dread to think just where the Television industry is looking for its viewers In the Night Garden. Some of them are dead, and the rest have moved on. Ive always adored darling Tony Robinson since his days as Baldric, and Mick (RIP), Phil (gotta love him!) Yes as convicts and bloody proud of it. Screening 13 episodes a year, as well as live digs and specials the programme was ubiquitous. In most places over here there are literally hundreds of channels with endless variety. Please bring back time team I do really miss watch it please please bring it back. , updated I have just realised that time team is to be axed by c4. Shows that actually ADD something GOOD to the mix. It has made the subject of archaeology interesting and accessible for everyone and if they were still activetheres an interesting mound that desperately needs investigating at the end of our road. . (But not, ever, I would agree, grinning totty!) It was Stewart who discovered the true route of the Roman road as it went through Greenwich Park. Big Bang (repeat), Simpsons (repeat), Simpsons (another repeat), Maid in Manhattan (good grief!). It may be in fifteen or so years a new Time Team will go digging in the archives of the defunct Channel 4 to explain how with the audience Channel 4 had for an entertaining and informative programme Which bright go ahead executive (IDIOT) came up with the Idea, if its not broken we must fix it. I too am upset that this has been axed. And this program had run its course several years ago. Yes, the original core team with Carenza, and then Helen Geake, were great. Learned lots of the history of the show from these posts but I dont know whether Ive seen the cleavage or whether Micks absence from a dig is because hes doing something else, on hols etc or because hes gone. You are going to be missed more than most of us realise. Slower paced, Timesigns has Mick talking directly to the camera in a style more akin to a history documentary or Open University broadcast. I now look forward to watching as many individual shows as I can in the future. I agree entirely. I agree with you . Its brilliant and helps this Singapore based Brit to feel less far away. But for me the real genius is Stewart who can look at a landscape and tell you what it was like hundreds of years ago. yes, I too have treasured every episode, and it has been the one programme of all channels that I never wanted to miss, even asking family to record it if I went on holiday, in the early years before I had a dvd m/c. Anyone who visited one of their digs while shooting was underway will have seen the devotion it inspired in members of the public. He is 10. Filmed at Athelney, site of Alfred the Greats apocraphal burnt cakes, the site was scheduled, precluding excavation. There are some of us who actually enjoy watching interesting, factual, historic programs. Whilst on youtube, also check out dig ventures; another fantastic project with another familiar face. Time Teams genesis is a well-rehearsed story. Off now to have a quick dig in my garden then on to Salisbury to stalk Phil Harding.intelligence soooo sexy. If an episode costs 200,000 and average 1.5 million viewers, would 1 million be willing to pay 20p via mobile phone or subscription towards making it, or 400,000 willing to pay 50p per episode? Strata indeed! Yes, the interest remains for the show. And a pint or 2 as well, EUTOPIA. I have been in awe of the items the team dig up and the re-constructions. Not all of us want mindless reality TV that costs a few bob to present. RIP Time Team. Towards the end of its run an average episode would cost around 200,000 a budget more on the scale of a small drama show in the eyes of television insiders but over 20 years Channel 4 pumped 4 million directly into British archaeology. During that time he deduced the towns Medieval layout. I used to go into a hole with a size 9 shovel and spent nearly 33 years digging around obstacles like gas, electric, sewers, to name a few and I can assure you that I did not have the patience of some of this team. And really, TT changed my life! archaeology..is what my 11 year old gran daughter is looking into training for..shows like these are needed more. I have loved Time Team for years and wish that there were not so many bone heads in Channel 4. May be he could be a Lord? Thank you,Mick, for all that you gave us.and thanks to Micks family for sharing him with us. It is the ONLY program I think worth watching in all the rubbish put on these days ! I have four sons we have been Time Team fans for years. The team are irreplaceable, such a huge whole left in life once the program ended. I used to love all the research that they put into it. Gutted! I have missed Time Team SO much.. Now I will be stuck with overproduced, watered down supposedly historically accurate twaddle , We held a bit of a poll a few years ago with the Pagan Federation as to what the favourite TV programme was. This informative, interesting program has long been a favourite amongst all ages of our family. We love Time Team and are astonished at its demise. Thank you. I rue the fact that as a child we used encyclopaedias 20 years out of date. When did Mick leave time team? A few days later news of Time Teams demise broke in the Guardian. I really didnt like that nasty dendrochronologist who wouldnt show his results though idiot! If those of us who have never met him mourn today, how much more must his friends and family be feeling his passing? The format was part of the problem. Stewart Ainswort. Loved the history of U.K. Self (as Prof. Stewart Ainsworth) Show all 219 episodes 1998 Time Team Extras (TV Series documentary) Self - High Worsall, North Yorkshire (1998) . Piss-up and brewery certainly spring to mind. You can help Wikipedia by expanding it. Tony Robinson is proud of the programmes success in making archaeology accessible. I could have watched it for another 20 years. Channel 4 is a crude simulacrum of its original self and I agree that BBC 4 would be TTs natural home.Id love to see the old Time Team reunited Ill live in hope!
