Bookies Reckon Richard III Mystery Could Lead To Return Of Time Team

Who would have thought that in this day and age, when prime time TV is laden with glamour, guts and Reality TV that one of the big five terrestrial broadcasters would capture the imagination of the nation with its investigation of Richard III's skeleton? Channel 4 commanded the attention of 3.7m viewers, twice its normal average for this slot on Monday, for its documentary on the legendary King and now as a result bookmakers Paddy Power are offering odds on the return of Time Team.

Ironically Channel 4 axed Time Team last year after a twenty year run in the belief that there was just not enough interest in things past. Paddy Power are offering odds of 4/1 that it will reappear in 2013. This could be a tempting little punt for the eagle eyed Novelty gamer. No other channel has found a pallatable format for an archeological theme, so the suggestion that Time Team should be resurrected seems timely and appropriate. Channel 4 have the knowledge, format and wherewithall to meet an obvious need with the British viewers and as the channel who has always sought individuality and edginess in its scheduling this could be a good choice for them.

Actor Tony Robinson, famed for his portrayal of Baldrick in Rowan Atkinson's Black Adder series, was the presenter of the last series, but mindful of the necessity for a revamp should it return, Paddy Power are offering another book on who would be the new presenter. Monday night's show was hosted by screenwriter Philippa Langley and on the back of her infectious enthusiasm and passion for the project she has gone straight to the top of the odds table at 6/1 to host the show.

Unsurprisingly the rest of the list contains a raft of serious broadcasting types who could win over the hearts and minds of the archeologically savvy.In second place is Dan Snow at 7/1 a man who already presents a variety of history based projects for the BBC, but has a gene pool that reflects credibility. His Father Jon Snow is only two places behind him at 10/1, suggesting that the Snow's CVs are in themselves proof positive that they are made for the position.

There are other names on the list that are less obvious on an intellectual level but perhaps have personalities that would draw a broader spectrum of folk to Time Team should it retuen. James May and Richard Hammond of Top Gear notoriety at 10/1 and 12/1 respectively could be just the enthusiastic clowns that Channel 4 would want to embrace but their BBC contracts could be prohibitive. Also there would be little petrol head adrenalin action in the dust and bones of an archeological dig.

Make no mistake, Time Team did end last year and the presenters job does not even exist but the figures that Channel 4 bathed in on Monday could well be generating some hurried boardroom and production meetings as we speak. This is certainly a punt worth looking at
