C 14 was the first-ever dedicated TV series about archaeology in Germany. In each 30-minute episode, several short reports about different archaeological projects were presented. The featured sites were chosen in close co-operation with the various state archaeology services in Germany. At least two of the associated books also contained prefaces by Dieter Planck, then President of the Association of German State Archaeologists (Verband der Landesarchäologen).
