I have been reading the various posts related to Bonekickers over the last week or so and having missed the first episode I saw the second last night. The majority of posts have been overwhelmingly negative but the few positive posts relate to the benefit archaeology may receive through increased awareness.
Having seen the last show and considering two of the main characters are black, should Bonekickers prove to be an enduring success will it have an impact on the number of ethnic minority students taking up archaeology?
Despite the many complaints the program has received, if it can achieve this when other programs have seemingly failed (and please correct me if I am wrong in this assumption as I rarely watch television but have not noticed a dramatic increase in people from ethnic backgrounds entering archaeology) surely that can only be a good thing despite the many complaints that people have?
