After 18 years, 20 series and more than 40 specials, it has been announced that Time Team will air its final series on Channel 4 in 2013. A number of one-off specials will continue to be aired into 2014 and the series will be repeated on More4 and Channel 4.
Channel 4 proposes to increase its focus on "new and innovative history programming". New commissions will include exclusive access to archaeological discoveries such as the recently announced 'The King in the Carpark: Richard III', and 'The People of Stonehenge', 'The Hood' - as well as 'Attack of the Zeppelins' with Hugh Hunt.
