I don't normally cover TV programmes that are not airing on the BBC. I have made an exception for this one because it pertains to Shakespeare!

Cut and pasted from an email from The Telegraph:

A newly discovered document has shown that the location of William Shakespeare’s house isn’t quite where Victorian archaeologists thought, and that it was in fact the town’s grandest Tudor residence. Follow the link to read Michael Hogan’s full preview of the Time Team special, which unearths crucial historical evidence about the Bard’s life:

'Searching for Shakespeare’s House: a Time Team Special' is on Channel 4 on Sunday 11 March at 8.00pm.

Mr T never misses an episode of Time Team, so you may be sure that the TV will be switched on for this programme in our house!

Interesting fuel to the authorship debate if it is proven that Shakespeare's wealth – as shown by dwelling size and increasing improvements to home in Stratford upon Avon – was more than previously suspected. Of course he could still have been receiving payment for keeping quiet about NOT writing the plays... :-))
