The Unofficial website for Tony Robinson

A few bits of info about what Im currently doing.
My recent Cunning Night Out sell out tour is being released on DVD by Acorn Media UK on 5th November.
For those of you who didn't see my one man show it is a roller-coaster ride through the many twists and turns of my life from the early days on stage as the Artful Dodger to my recent successes, up to my knees in mud with Time Team and up to my armpits in wee for Worst Jobs in History.
You can visit Acorn Media's website for more details or to pre-order the DVD.
At last weve finally completed the second Codex series.
At the moment its scheduled to start transmission on the first Saturday in September.
Its much better than the first series, its shorter, tighter, faster and funnier and the contestants are very bright!
Its a bit like a modern day University Challenge about old stuff.
Im halfway through filming a series about the the history of British law.
Weve completed the two middle episodes dealing with the Normans and the Tudors.
In the autumn we film the Romans and the Victorians.
Its very informative but slightly bizarre and I suspect people will either love it or be very hacked off by it!
Time Teams well under way.
Weve done nine episodes of the current series already!
In fact, while Im writing this Im in bed in Market Harborough after a hard days work helping to discover an Anglo Saxon grub hut.
Were also making four Time Team documentaries about a variety of different subjects - Iron Age Hillforts, The Theft of Antiquities, The Round Table and the major excavations that are under way in Liverpool for 2008.
Channel 4 have got some extraordinary plans for me next year but Im not allowed to say anything about them because Im currently involved in negotiations for a new three year contract.
Hopefully everything will go swimmingly and Ill be offered a sack load of money, ten weeks holiday a year and a Japanese Masseuse!
On the other hand, of course, if the negotiations collapse there will be no more Time Team and Ill be stoned to death by angry fans!!
