WW2 Treasure Hunters (w/t), will see Suggs and World War Two expert Stephen Taylor bring forgotten stories of the war back to life, by unearthing rare artefacts from former military sites across the UK.

Using archives, maps and state-of-the-art technology, the duo will work together to identify the best places to dig at forgotten sites, including airfields, barracks and military bases.

Once they have been located, they will go on to perform extensive digs to excavate the relics.
