We have received the following casting call from Time Team:-
“Time Team are currently in production for their 19th series and are looking to make some changes to the on screen team.
We are looking for a FEMALE co- host, someone who ideally has experience in presenting archaeology, history or anthropology programming. It would also be great to hear about presenters with a proven passion for these subjects, an academic background or otherwise. This person does not have to be overly experienced or knowledgeable as we have plenty of expertise within the existing on and off- screen team, however intelligence, natural curiosity and a passion for Archaeology is a must! Tony Robinson will continue to be the Series Presenter, introduce the programmes and voice them.
The shoot schedule runs from 4 April to 12 August, with three filming days every other week, tending to fall Tuesday – Thursday with travel days either side. The digs and their locations are still to be confirmed.
We are also looking for someone who has expertise in Computational Archaeology to be an occasional contributor (specific programmes only), explaining all computer output to the presenters and on- screen team (ie. they would not be required to present).
We are looking for a Landscape Archaeologist to be an occasional contributor (for specific programmes only). Again this would be to work with the presenters and the rest of the on- screen team (ie. they would not be required to present).
We are looking for an Archaeologist who would essentially be a digger, spending all three days of every programme in a trench. At least 24 months of full time digging experience would be required.
For these three non- presenter roles we are happy to consider people with or without broadcast experience. What is important is high energy, good rapport with the team and of course to be comfortable on camera”
and let us know what positions you are interested in.
Please note these positions are UK based and you need to be available for the entire shooting period.
