Anthropologist, author and broadcaster Professor Alice Roberts has been delving into Britain’s past, and making archaeology programmes, for nearly twenty years. Alice joined Time Team as a bone expert before going on to present anthropology and archaeology stories on BBC Two’s immensely popular Coast series and co-presenting The Celts in 2015.
Alice has presented seven series of Digging for Britain, sharing new archaeological discoveries from across the UK on BBC Four, and she has explored the history of our towns and cities in Britain’s Most Historic Towns on Channel 4 - which will be back with a second series in 2019. She has written eight popular science and archaeology books, including The Celts and Tamed: Ten species that changed our world.
Expedition with Steve Backshall will follow Steve, his team of world-class experts and his film crew, as they venture into uncharted territory.
Steve Backshall said: “If you think our planet was explored long ago, think again. There are still dark and forgotten corners of our world with hidden secrets and we plan to reveal them.”
Steve is accompanied by a world class film crew who will document the journey and feature on camera throughout the series. The filming of the expedition is as much a part of the story as the exploration of each out-of-this-world location. To be successful, Steve and his adventurist experts – including divers, kayakers and mountaineers – will have to rely on each other and the power of extraordinary teamwork.
