Anyone watch Richard III: King in the carpark on SBS?

Tonight I watched Richard III: King in the car park.   It was amazing to see how they found him, used DNA to confirm his body and how they assembled his remains to be scanned along with reconstruction of his face. 

Did anyone else in Australia see this tonight?

Yep, it screened in the UK a while ago. Did you notice ( I think it was Jo Appleby, osteologist) swinging that mattock through the skull.......mind boggling.
Poor old Philippa Langley got a lot of criticism too for her somewhat "over the top" behaviour.
Nice to see John Ashdown Hill on the screen, he has just been awarded Fellow of the Royal Historical Society I believe.

I don't think Phillipa was OTT.   I think she has spent so much energy on learning about Richard III and thought of him a lot that to finally see his remains and his reconstructed skull in the "flesh" was very overwhelming.

I am sure a few members on here if they had the chance of seeing the skulls of the IF and servants reconstructed in person they too would be overwhelmed.
