The Ness on TV


The Ness has featured on TV before in its own hour long UK TV special, also hosted by Neil Oliver, a well-respected Scottish broadcaster and Friend of the Ness. This was not widely shown outside of the UK, but is available to view via Youtube:

The Ness of Brodgar has attracted worldwide media attention, and here we find the site featured on the PBS newshour, during site director Nick Card's 2013 lecture tour of the USA.

In January 2017 the BBC   aired a three part  documentary 'Britains' Ancient Capital, Secrets of Orkney' featuring the Ness of Brodgar and presented by Neil Oliver and Chris Packham who spent much time at the Ness in the summer of 2017, and all three episodes are available to view online.
