Tutankhamun: Allies & Enemies

Wednesday, Nov. 23 at 7 p.m.

Marking the 100th anniversary of the unearthing of King Tutankhamun’s tomb by British archaeologist Howard Carter, this ambitious film is a journey of exploration and discovery. Egyptian co-hosts Yasmin El Shazly and Mahmoud Rashad delve into the mysteries and unanswered questions about the boy king’s life: the religious and cultural revolution started by his father, those advising him as he ascends to the throne at a very young age, and the circumstances around his untimely death.

With rare access to government officials, including Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities Dr. Mostafa Waziry, and the renowned Egyptologists Dr. Zahi Hawass, Fayza Haikal, Salima Ikram and more, El Shazly and Rashad travel across Egypt in search of answers — from the Egyptian Museum in Cairo to an active dig site in Abydos. Near the Colossi of Memnon and Amenhotep III Conservation Project there is a brand-new discovery and, for the first time thanks to CT scans and Egyptian tissue marker charts, we can see the face of Tutankhamun.
