Tonight's final programme of the series looks at the life and times of Tutankhamun himself. The discovery of his treasure-filled tomb made this King world-famous.
He is the one Ancient Egyptian that everyone has heard of. But paradoxically, the details of his life are harder to make out than those of many another, less well known pharaoh, and a lot of detective work has been needed to piece together the facts about him.

Introduced by Cyril Aldred from the Tutankhamun Exhibition at the British Museum

A personal view by Kenneth Clark

"The gothic world, the world of chivalry, courtesy and romance; a world in which serious things were done with a sense of play-where even war and theology could become a sort of game; and when architecture reached a point of extravagance unequalled in history. And yet these centuries produced some of the greatest spirits in the whole history of man, amongst them St. Francis of Assisi and Dante."

Kenneth Clark journeys from a castle on the Loire, through the hill towns of Tuscany and Umbria to the cathedral baptistry at Pisa, as he explores the aspirations and achievements of the later Middle Ages in France and Italy.
