: The Face of Tutankhamun

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

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome
