Channel 4 Drops Time Team

According to a report in today's Guardian, Channel 4 has decided to axe Time Team after almost 20 years on air. Around four years ago the programme was apparently attracting around 2.5 million viewers but recently appears to have "lost its way." Mick Aston is quoted as saying that it had been "dumbed down" and that there was "a lot less archaeological content and a lot more pratting about." Channel 4 is quoted as saying that it wants to "focus on new and innovative history programming."
