Dig It! TV Team
Nominated for Category C: Sharing and Celebrating - Volunteer-led projects promoting local history, architecture and archaeology.
Dig It! TV is a volunteer-led YouTube channel which offers unparalleled access and a unique slant on Scotland’s sites, objects and people. By blending “traditional” topics with themes such as Minecraft, LGBT history and Harry Potter, the volunteers are bringing Scotland’s stories to a wider audience and encouraging everyone to discover the history and heritage in their own backyard. Dig It! TV has covered everything from a mysterious sarcophagus in a local heritage centre to a “fairy tale” castle tucked away beside a World Heritage Site.
