What are some fictional examples of archaeology/ruins set in the future?

I'm looking for examples of archaeology of the present day, and/or of the ruins of the modern world, from the perspective of the future, as expressed in fiction or film. These could be major plot points, recurrent themes, or merely passing references. [more inside]

1980s TV show.. ERASED from existence

There was a TV show, early 80s, probably on PBS. Short subject, less than 20 minutes, squeezed in between shows. It was all about Emerging Future Tech! Like microcomputers, art in tech, digital stuff. The host was Laurie Anderson. It has FALLEN off the FACE of the EARTH. [more inside]

Movie identification: b/w post-apocalyptic prison-rescue with no dialogue, seen on tv in UK

Many years ago I saw a film on tv. It was in black and white. It was set in some sort of post-apocalyptic world, and involved a girl who was kept from the hero, in a succession of elaborate prisons/cages, which the hero tried to breach time and again, always failing to get the girl.
There was no talking in it at all, except when once, in the middle of the film, the hero breaches the girl's prison (only to find she's been removed yet again by the villain) and picks up her diary(?) and reads a small passage from it aloud.
The villain had a number of accomplices, one of whom was some sort of "mole man" whom he treated badly (perhaps kept on a leash). I remember the film being somewhat feted when it was released, but I've never seen or heard of this film since its single UK TV showing. I'd love to see it again, but since I don't know what it was called ...

(What was it called?)
