It was wonderful stuff and it was so great to be able to sit on the informed and incredibly interesting conversations between the archaeologists and the repartee with Tony Robinson. What is the matter not retro enough for you ! I am a 57 year old Aussie and I watched this program every episode I could see. It was responsible for me going on a dig and having a great time. Steve Singleton My absolute favorite TV program! Its prototype was Timesigns, a four-part series that aired in 1991. 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. Loved the history of U.K. Tony Robinson seems an entirely likeable guy and does his presenting job with good humour and humility. Thanks to all who were involved in Time Team in any way. You wonder what kind of palsy comes over TV programers when they occasionally axe the best shows, shows with strong, solid substance!!! Take up the mantel!! Time Team did a superb job and has an excellent track record of quality archaeology, bringing the subject to millions via TV and publishing the results! Try Dig Ventures, an online crowd-funded Archaeology site. I agree entirely. And they have taken it off and broken up a brilliant team. Our investigation of the villa and the landscape it occupies will aim to preserve and enrich our understanding of the past and the people who inhabited it.

Filmed at Athelney, site of Alfred the Greats apocraphal burnt cakes, the site was scheduled, precluding excavation. Goodbye, Time Team, and thank you. TT had a great following here in Canada. and long may you show them PLEASE pauline x, I am trying to get a contact e-mail address for Tim Taylor (IV) because a group of archeologists in Canada would like to see a Time Team Canada started and we need advice and any other help from the expert. A thoroughly good bunch of people with a true PASSION for their subject ! Do 5 day digs instead. Will miss the team, at least we have more 4. Without any doubt whatsoever Time Team was the best show on TV and a giant amongst the crappy stuff we have to put up with these days such as reality TV shows. This was the best educational programme that looked forward to every week and also all the repeats that were broadcast on more 4. How very sad. What a bore YOU are! Please, please would someone bring the show back, This is just another example of Managements old adage: Its perfect; lets New and Improve it Good riddance to Time Team; patronising in the extreme, and as for that prat Robinson leaping about a la Baldrick, reduced the entire thing to music hall. What a shame to see it go, but what a swan song. http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/time-team-should-continue-on-tv.html. There is a huge following in Australia and after the debacle with the producers bringing in you know who as a co-presenter (of cleavage), the show started its slow path to division. My parents watch it. TT is without doubt, the best offering in British television. The marvelous experts have described items, historical facts and what could have been, may have been and what was likely to have been and possibly how the ancestors [residents and visitors alike] changed the landscape. Tony Robinsons role seems to one of a viewer who does not completely understand what is going on although logic says he must have a reasonable knowledge of the subject. We also miss Stuart very much. Who is Mary Ann & what does she bring to the table? I saw the same program, Justin, and I agree entirely! A few years earlier Tony Robinson had joined a trip Mick was leading to Santorini as part of his adult education work for Bristol University.

I will miss my bit of kulcha. My enduring memory of Tony Robinson during Time Team filming is him spending several hours of every day asleep in a massive American car with the engine running. How right Mick Aston was. I could have watched it for another 20 years. They have onbly made a couple of mistakes, 1 was letting Mick go and the other was axing Time Team. Perhaps we can come up with a crew of our own with Ronald Hutton replacing Tony Robinson and I do know of a great film crew that would take up the filming. Ridiculous. Toni Victoria australia. I have always wondered what happens to all the dirt that the Time Team dig out of their sites after the 3 days of digging? The cast and crew were pretty obviously seriously digging their roles, (bad pun semi-intended sorry about that sort of). We do have money too you know. In this months Science Notes, we will explore the evidence for this hypothesis, and examine how violence-related injuries are distinguished in archaeological human remains. Many episode are available free on veehd.com. 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? Lets hope that BBC4 takes up the genre. (especially phil, that crazy bloke,lol).I hope channel 4 regret the decision to axe the show. WHY? Buggering about with scheduling times has buggered many a decent tv series. However, they added: Intelligence, natural curiosity and a passion for archaeology is a must..

This little part of the world (so far from Australia) was the birthplace of my father in law. Very sad to hear Time Team is ending. The UK is lucky that it has such a long history.

What better way of introducing archaeology to young people than for them to see it on a Sunday afternoon? Please bring back Time Team with Tony Robinson.

As others have said, lets hope that the B.B.C. with the Amazonian co-presenter with the huge bonded teeth. We hope that someone our there will take them under their wing and continue the shows its been great,you have shown us so much interesting archaeology of our past from all the corner;s of our beautiful planet,and its hard work doing all that digging and trying to preserve it for our future children. Stick to Postman Pat, Time Team is too intellectual for you. I have missed Time Team SO much.. Im getting to the point at which I can glance at a find in a diggers hand and exclaim, Oh! Sad that time team is no longer , they should go back to how it all started , dont mess with what is ok . Also it being on an increasingly miserable Channel (4) did it no favours whatsoever. Not all of us want mindless reality TV that costs a few bob to present. The students became instant converts to the program. Executive producer Philip Clarke said the current series had introduced Miss Ochota and archaeologist Alex Langlands. Hope it returns anne from Ontario Canada. Ive loved Time Team since day one, but recently Ive found it becoming a little too cozy. Im sure it was meant to interest younger viewers in Archeology, a noble enough concept. Im an Englishman, came to Australia as a 12yo in 1970. Above all we learned something new in each programme , not the usual rehashed information served up in other one -off programmes on popular periods. From the fall of TT on the minuscule scale, to the fall of a Royal house; loss of a battle; collapse of an empire. I AM SO UPSET AT THE ENDING OF TIME TEAM ! IT DID NOT NEED JAZZING UP. Cliche good looking, middle-class presenters who appear somewhat dull in enthusiasm. He compared them to the reshuffle at the BBCs Countryfile in 2008, which introduced younger presenters and, he said, reduced it to clich-ridden pap.

Carenza Lewis, Stewart Ainsworth, Helen Geake and geophys genius John Gater will all be returning and are excited about the new sites. Tim Team has finally brought British history into focus for me. Mick Aston was a remarkable person intelligent and well informed but still able to get complicated concepts across in an way that was accessible to all. Time Time could go on indefinitely as long as it found a sympathetic home, and BBC Four would be ideal, their audience demographic would fit far far better than the current Channel 4 one, which is increasingly to try and chase the Reality/Makeover show market at the expense of original programming, and attract audiences that the advertisers prefer to exploit, rather than those with brain. Sorry I dont know how to do this! Mick the Dig joined Time Team early on as our resident excavation supervisor and was personally responsible for Time Team's biggest ever hole - at Blaenavon, Wales (an honour that looks unlikely to be beaten any time soon!).

They were like a 70s open university program with their hairstyles and clothes. Would love to see a new Time Team series up and running again especially now theyve found King Richard llls body, also instead of 3 days to uncover make it a 5-7 days to uncover maybe Geo-physics could find out a lot more information so here is a challenge to all the mainstream TV channels bring back Time Team! I am an ex water board worker and I still don t know where they obtained the patience to go into a hole in the ground and dig with a trowel. It was an intelligent, thought provoking, and entertaining program. Just heard about the axing of Time Team what a shame! The Team had a comradery like that of an elite military unit. Yeah. I continue to be in awe of the fantastic skill and enthusiasm of the presenters.May TT be always available to us. Tags: Miss Ochota, 30, holds a masters degree in archaeology and anthropology from Cambridge University. Come on BBC, take up where C4 left off PLEASE!!

Tapped into the national zeitgeist, its stars were household names and at its zenith Time Team was pulling in audiences of 3 3.5 million viewers. It may also be heresy to say so, but I think many people who were interested more in the archaeology than the banter, found the relationship between Phil and Tony, to be past its sell by date.

I thoroughly enjoyed learning about the digs and finds discovered by the crew. Yet time and time again they did it with grace, charm, humor and knowledge. A group of archaeologists have 3 days to discover historical artifacts in different sites around Britain. Well it seems the bean counters got their way.

This will give viewers the chance to engage as the shows are researched and developed, see live blogs during filming, watch virtual reality landscape data at home and join in Q&As with the team. That a pile of random rubble is a wall, a stain in the ground is a ditch and Tony Robinson is a supercilious pot bellied bore. I just love this programme and am very sad to hear that there will be no more. In an interview with the magazine British Archaeology, Professor Aston said he was responding to changes first proposed by producers at Channel 4 in late 2010 before the filming of the series that is currently being aired. 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. Im retired now and would love to get involved in archeology at some level. Sounds as though short sighted suits are at work. My wife was unwell for many years but TT was one of the few TV Shows that she got pleasure from. Certainly the revamp for the 2012 programmes didnt do the programme any favours but another reason for the loss of viewers even before that must have been the lack of a fixed time in the schedules.

A terrible mistake in the cancellation of Time Team one the most educational series on T V I and my friend in Canada cant wait each Monday evening to watch the show we both being amateur Archaeologists and worked for many years with the Ontario Archaeology Soc and find the show captivating and extremely educational and will be sorry to see it end. Changing all the staff behind Time Team was a big mistake, but ending it is even bigger. As for the rest of the Team, hats off to you for the great fun and excellent archaeology looking forward to a few TT specials. 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. The only thing that surprises me is that they didnt include a so called comedian. Now, instead of honest archeology, we are going to be swamped with American hystorical programming, in which they assume we all have a 1 second attention span, need constant recaps (at least 4 per 10 minute part) and need it all (badly) acted out by ridiculous, cheap, and hugely inaccurate costumes, backgrounds and language. if thereis any justice in the world they shoud change there minds.TONY MICK PHIL STEWART JOHN MAT RAKSHA BRIGID CARENZA TO MENTION a few.

A family programe deleted. There were times when I would have liked to see some longer digs being featured and I would still like to see that, but it seems likely that it will not be Channel 4 doing it.
