Just a quick heads up to those of you with access to Netflix, the Dig is out today ( 29 Jan ) available for viewing.

Looks good, I'm just about to settle down and watch it.

Have just watched it, and I have to say it was well worth the wait.
I really enjoyed it.

I didn’t watch it to see Lily :lol: Loved it, despite ranting about the British Museum lot and the arrogance of those who think bits of paper trump experience, knowledge and passion.

A very good watch indeed :thumbsup:

Enjoyed that. Quite fancy the house.

Turns out a lot of it was filmed not far from me in Surrey.

I thought they missed a trick at the end. It would have been the cherry on the top if they’d shown, at least some, of the finds cleaned and displayed.

I fetched up a page full of pics on my iPad to show Hubby in case they didn’t. He was amazed. The two items that caught his eye were, of course, the helmet and the buckle.
He, like so many, found it hard to accept that such beautiful things were made ‘that far back’.

Watched it this afternoon , thought it was a brilliant film and very enjoyable . The days when smoking a pipe was not frowned upon and children asked to leave the table after dinner , how times have changed . Great film and I agree with ladybird , would have been nice to have seen all the finds laid out at the end .

I saw this on Twitter today. It’s a blog from the British Museum on how they helped the team developing The Dig.

There are photos from the original excavation and, of course, photos of the beautiful finds.

Enjoy!

It was a decent film and the type we Brits do best - no shooting, screeching tyres or CGI to make up for a weak plot. On the face of it the entire storyline is woman wants a hole dug and a man digs it, The End, but it was made interesting and was beautifully shot. And Ralph Feinnes's Suffolk accent was spot on, bor.

Diss Post Office has changed a bit though :lol:

But you're right - what we Brits do best.
