It's funny though, everywhere I go if someone goes near me detecting the first question they ask is "found anything?"

Oh yer.....the questions from people go on & on don't they.:rolleyes: That is why I so liked that programme "The Detectorists". It was all so real....& just how it is.

I am just thinking back to my beach detecting days & some of the questions people would ask.

Have you lost something?

What are you looking for?

Are you poor?

Do you do this for a living?

Have you found anything?

What are you doing? As if it isn't obvious.:rolleyes:

Found any gold?

How does that work?

Do those things really work?

Why do you do this?

ETC ETC.

Then you get people who walk past & when they are right beside you they go making  Beep Beep noises. Then kids would follow you along & your like the pied piper, when you got a signal & just as you are about to drive the pick in or the spade their little hands & fingers are going like crazy digging in the sand. You are trying to avoid hitting their hands & fingers. No wonder I gave it up.:rolleyes:

Isn't Gary still using the CTX 30 30 there?

I was reading this on my phone at work yesterday and I thought gee maybe this guy knows something about what Gary finds this season when all of a sudden I heard this big wooshing sound, turns out it was the joke flying over my head.

      Very true Reg, very few 'young'uns' are having a go....but a certain TV show is helping to a small degree I suspect. But from what Ive seen, the current 'instant gratification' generation doesnt have the patience or fortitude to spend time in the bush for more than half an hour...

      I recognize these guys from a cancelled show about searching for gold in Greenland (was it Ice Cold Gold?).  You never know about these and you don't want to get your hopes up, but I'm going to check it out.

      Wednesday, November 14, 2018 - 10:15 A+E Networks® UK today announced the commission of a brand new series, River Hunters, from Hello Halo Productions for flagship channel HISTORY®.
      The 8x60’ series pairs US YouTube sensation Beau Ouimette, a river detectorist with over 30 years’ experience, with presenter and keen swimmer Rick Edwards, as they search the UK’s waterways for archaeological finds. 
      River Hunters will see Rick and river-searching expert Beau, visit some of the most historically significant sites across Britain: covering iconic events and battles including Roman Briton, the Wars of the Roses, the Reformation and the English Civil War. Their searches of these unexplored rivers and waterways unearth treasures from the past which reveal how our various ancestors used to live.
      As the artefacts surface from under layers of silt and rocks, the duo will meet with local archaeologists and historians to unearth the stories and people behind the finds.  Spanning each river’s layered past, the new series will offer a fresh perspective and even redefine our history as we know it.
      Using state-of-the-art technology, archive maps and contemporaneous accounts from the period, Beau and Rick perform the first underwater archeological digs in some of the most exciting and iconic historical sites in Britain, often in dangerous and fast-flowing water.  
      River Hunters was commissioned by Dan Korn, VP of Programming for A+E Networks UK. Diana Carter, Commissioning Editor for A+E Networks UK, will executive produce the series for HISTORY.
      Dan Korn said:  By delving into Britain’s unexplored waterways, this series offers a unique glimpse into the passages of history which shaped our Island Nation and the ways of life of the various invaders and occupiers down the centuries. Some of the artefacts are truly breathtaking and shed new light on the richness of British history, and Beau and Rick’s blossoming partnership over the course of the series is a delight to behold.
      Rick Edwards commented: I’m delighted that we’re able to put to bed the idea that it's just shopping trolleys and old bikes in the UK's rivers - we found some truly extraordinary artefacts, bringing whole new perspectives to the stories from our rich past. I also got very cold.
      Wendy Rattray, Managing Director of Hello Halo, developed the series with Head of Development Natalie Hill, who is also Executive Producer, with Julie Grant as Series Producer.
      Natalie Hill said: With rivers largely unexplored in the UK, but integral to our rich past, this is a unique opportunity to find treasures long forgotten and untouched – from discarded and lost items, to offerings to gods -  each river will tell a tale never seen before.
      The new series will air on HISTORY in the UK in 2019. HISTORY is available on Sky, Virgin, BT and TalkTalk.
