DIG 1940

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS -

Sun­day, 6pm, ABC1

His­tory and mil­i­tary buffs will dig this new Time Team- type se­ries made in 2010 to mark the 70th an­niver­sary of what Win­ston Churchill de­scribed as Bri­tain’s ‘‘finest hour’’.

Ar­chae­ol­o­gist Jules Hud­son and a team of his­to­ri­ans are dig­ging up streets in an ef­fort to find relics from World War II. Like Time Team, plenty of air time goes to find­ing the dig site and the ex­ca­va­tion rather than to what is ac­tu­ally found.

Of course, what they have to their ad­van­tage, un­like Time Team, is plenty of archival footage to pad out the show and, even bet­ter, peo­ple who were there at the time who can give their ac­count of events.
