King Tut: The Face of Tutankhamun

2006 NR

This four-part BBC docudrama chronicles the discovery of King Tut's tomb in 1922 by archeologist Howard Carter, bringing to life the suspense and excitement via dramatic re-enactments. "The Great Adventure" traces Carter's search for the pharaoh's tomb, while "Wonderful Things" captures the moment he unseals it. We then see the apparent effects of an ancient curse in "The Pharaoh Awakes" and learn more about the mummy in "Heads in the Sand."
