Has anyone else seen this UK production - two men (as the title suggests) exploring the battlefields of England. Stars Scottish historian Neil Oliver (and another bloke whose name I have conveniently forgotten). Aired on SBS2 last night - battlefield examined - Culloden.

I haven`t, for some unknown reason, seen this TV series. I will have to check the TV listings in case it is repeated.

Um .... should have been a bit more specific .... its on currently here in Oz.

Hosted by Neil Oliver, a scottish historian and his mate. Sort of a Team Team / Battlefield Dectectives type show.

The U.S. seems to be woefully lagging in this kind of programming. I hope I can find this show on iTunes or Amazon. I'm glad for this forum to help me learn about these shows!
