BBC Four renews Raiders of The Lost Past With Dr Janina Ramirez

Dr Ramirez will once again follow in the footsteps of the greatest explorer-archaeologists around the world in search of hallowed ancient sites.

The second series will visit the southern fjords of Norway to find the Oseberg Viking Ship, the Greek island of Crete to reveal the truth behind the myth of the minotaur and the Konya Plain of Turkey to explore the world’s oldest city.

Channel 4 commissions new travelogue series with Rosie Jones

Exploring the UK in all its eccentric glory, Jones will set out to prove the power of minority and a good sense of humour over a big budget when it comes to travel.

Semi-scripted, the series begins with Jones having to abandon her global, luxurious travel plans, before convincing Channel 4 to adapt conceptually to Covid-19 and its constraints.

Instead, each episode a celebrity guest will join Jones in a different location within the UK, sniffing out adventures in both the city and the country.
