"Diggers" (TV show) on National Geographic Channel is a reality series hosted by amateur scientists, vocational metal detector enthusiasts and history buffs George "KG" Wyant and Tim "Ringy" Saylor, who scour the country for lost pieces of American history — from Civil War buckles to family heirloom rings and silver coins. Where there is an empty yard, field or beach approved for metal detecting, the duo see a treasure trove, and will go the distance to uncover "the juice," as they call it, working in close collaboration with a local archaeologist or historian at every site. It's not just the raw value of the object that gets them excited; it's the thrill of the hunt and the possibility that the next artifact they dig up could yield the discovery of a lifetime, similar to the lucky Brit who found the Saxon hoard.

Season 3

This season, KG and Ringy have kicked up the hunt for "nectar" to a whole new level — from bayonets and rare buttons to Colonial cannonballs and historical coins — even a time capsule containing a rare piece of Apple history. The duo is relentless in their search for lost pieces of history, leaving no stone unturned and no field undetected.

For National Geographic Channel, executive producer and vice president of production and development is Charlie Parsons, executive in charge of production is Michael Cascio and president is Howard T. Owens.
