Time Team makes epic return to screens with original host Tony Robinson – but with a major twist | The Sun

TIME Team is making an epic return to screens with its original host Tony Robinson – but with a major twist.

The hit Channel 4 series first aired in 1994 and featured specialists carrying out archaeological digs.


It would take place over a period of three days as the team would try to uncover as much information as possible about the historic sites.

Actor Sir Tony Robinson was on hand to explain to viewers exactly what was happening during the digs.

The show ran for an whopping 20 years before being axed by C4 bosses.

In 2020 repeats of classic episodes were shown before the series was revived this year as new host Gus Casely-Hayford took over.
