From 1996, well worth another look, currently on Amazon Prime.
Daniel Craig not looking at all like James Bond, right??

I believe the same can be said of "Some Voices" too. Let's just say he's not wearing a tux.

Much discussion with our son about that today!

We watched The Dig tonight. It was a very nice English movie with some lovely Suffolk accents thrown in. I enjoyed it

I haven't seen it but having read some reviews I think if it shows up for streaming somewhere I might give it a look. Err..it seems a bit different!

Exactly. Pretty, understated and undemanding.

The film that is, not your son. Is he an archeologist?

Son lives a little way along the River Cam from Kings. He tries to either walk or bike ride for some daily exercise past it most days during lockdown. He is a programmer but has his dad's obsessions about British history

No, the 'throw' is throwing the lump of clay onto the potters wheel, but still. I used to love the 'Potters wheel' intermission on the BBC when they did them when I was younger.

You have all watched The Detectorists, right? If not, do so immediately.

I wouldn't have thought it was a spectator sport, but I must have missed something.
