Dr Karl Strolin:
Three films about the greatest archaeological story of all time. Christopher Frayling narrates the story of how Egypt's desert reluctantly gave up it secrets.
The Great Adventure. The discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb in November 1922 enthralled the world. What odds did archaeologist Howard Carter beat to locate treasures that lay untouched for over 3000 years?
7.20 Wonderful Things. The treasures found in the tomb created a bitter conflict between Carter and the Egyptian authorities. With the dramatic death of his sponsor Lord Carnavon, Carter was left to deal with an increasingly tense political situation as Egyptian nationalists struggled against British colonial rule. It took ten years for Carter and his team to clear the funerary objects from the tomb and reveal the mortal remains of the boy-king.
8.10 Tutmania. Triumph turned to tragedy, as deaths in mysterious circumstances led to the idea of a curse on "whoever disturbs the tomb of the pharaoh". Producers Derek Towers and David Wallace
