Readers lucky enough to receive UK TV channel 5 might want to make a date in their diaries to be out tomorrow.

At 19:15 tomorrow (Tuesday) 5 will be starting a re-run of the series "Trench Detectives" which was their edited version of "Finding the Fallen". The series concentrates on our group No Man's Land and our work on five archaeological projects from the Western Front, including Serre, Loos and Beaumont Hamel.

Actually the series gives a fair idea of the process involved in excavating sites of this type and in the backstories one can uncover about individuals whose bodies and possessions are uncovered on the battlefields.

A number of the team who will be out at Plug Street are featured in the programmes, including a bizarre moment of Jon and Martin singing a Baptist hymn.
