In 1323 BC, Egypt was thrown into turmoil by the sudden death of its young King, Tutankhamun. It was a risky time both spiritually and politically. The Pharaoh had not prepared anything for his journey to the afterlife, nor had he named a successor. Tradition dictated that he must be buried within 70 days, and there were several pretenders to his throne. Using an effective combination of narration, atmospheric re-enactments and expert contributions, this exciting programme captures the full drama of The Race to Bury King Tut.
