Tutankhamun With Dan Snow – Channel 5

Historian Dan Snow explores the story of Egypt’s most famous Pharaoh in Channel 5’s Tutankhamun With Dan Snow, a three-part documentary showing over consecutive nights

On a chilly November night, what better escapism than to join Dan Snow in the Valley of the Kings in Egypt, as he tells the story of Tutankhamun’s life and death in Channel 5’s three part Tutankhamun With Dan Snow.

Raksha Dave helps out with an archaeologist’s point of view, while John Sergeant, in a lovely straw hat, finds out what life was like for Egyptians around 1323 BC, when the boy king died.
