Revelations of a Mummy
Narrated by Eric Thompson The threat of the mummy's curse failed to deter the scholars in Manchester who unwrapped mummy No 1770 - the first ancient Egyptian mummy to be scientifically investigated in this country since the turn of the century. But what, exactly, is a mummy? Why did the ancient Egyptians preserve their dead in this way? And why was the Manchester mummy buried with gold nipples and a false phallus? Chronicle records how modern science can tell us much that is new about ancient Egyptian society and shows how the 2,000-year-old mummy was brought back to life.

The Man in the Iron Mask
In November 1703, a mysterious prisoner died at the Bastille in Paris. For the last 34 years of his life he had been interned in a series of high-security prisons across France. Soon after his death, rumours about his identity began to circulate. The man had been forced to wear a mask. Was there perhaps some family resemblance to King Louis XIV?
Henry Lincoln investigates the story of the 'Man in the Iron Mask' and - using evidence which only came to light last year - separates fact from romantic myth. Photography MARTIN PATMORE Film editor PAUL ASHTON Producer JONATHAN DENT Series editor ROY DAVIES
