Those of you who managed to see Alice Roberts' "Digging for Britain" on BBC 4 last night will have been treated to an overview of SWAAG's Hagg dig and an interpretation of the site as a major part of the food network during the late Roman period. It was good to see shots of the dig, of Philip and of Dr James Gerrard. Hopefully some of the diggers saw themselves on screen! There were also some lovely shots of the beautiful landscape. Most of the film came from the professional team who visited for a day towards the end of the dig but this was intercut with our own footage. Inevitably much of what I shot ended up on the digital cutting room floor and I was sorry that they could not include the "interview" I filmed with landowner David Clarke, among other things. Overall though, it was great to see the site's importance being recognised and to fly the flag for Swaledale.
The programme is on BBC iPlayer for the next few weeks if you would like to watch it again.
