RIP Prof. Mick Aston

Postby Tonyblack » Tue Jun 25, 2013 5:11 am

I have been working my way through the 20 series of Channel 4's Time Team on 4oD recently, so I was very sad to hear of the death of presenter Professor Mick Aston. :(

RIP Prof. Mick Aston.

He showed how interesting the history beneath our feet is. RIP Mick. :cry:

Oh crap.

And double crap to learn that my beloved Phil Harding is 62. :o

RIP

Time Team wasn't the same once Mick left the series.

Very sad indeed :( Mick's passion for his subject and interaction with the team made him compulsive viewing. I came across some ancient VHS tapes of Time Team recently and will watch them soon.
Rest in Peace Prof. Mick Aston.

Janet, they have all 20 years of Time Team on 4 on Demand. I've just got to series 10. Mick was so patient explaining things and had that knack of being able to pass his enthusiasm on to other people. I had a Geology teacher like that. It's a real gift in a teacher.
