Raiders of the Lost Pharaoh
Searching for the lost Ark of the Covenant, the French archaeologist Pierre Montet made one of the richest discoveries in Egypt. Biblical clues led him to the city of Tanis in the Nile delta where he found the tombs of Psusennes I and other pharaohs unplundered for nearly 3,000 years. Along with Tutankhamun these are the only royal burials to be found intact. Who was Psusennes and what is the significance of Montet's discovery?
Barry Cunliffe investigates the continuing excavations at Tanis and the exhibition of golden funerary objects currently on display in Edinburgh.

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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
