Did the "Curse of King Tut" kill three of his tomb's discoverers?

Egypt's Golden Empire:The Warrior Pharaohs
Synopsis:
Egypt was divided and in danger of falling under foreign rule. However, the royal family of the Egyptian capital was determined to restore Egypt. The King of Thebes followed by his two young sons, Kamose and then Ahmose, struggled to repel the enemy Hyksos and unite Egypt once again.

Nevertheless, their successor, Hatshepsut, put Egypt into jeopardy once more. Not only had she stolen the throne from her stepson, Tuthmosis III, but as a woman, declaring herself pharaoh had broken more than 1000 years of tradition.

When Tuthmosis III eventually gained the throne, more than 20 years later, he was keen to do what no other pharaoh had done – build an empire.

Sunday Feb 22, 6-7pm
Egypt's Golden Empire:The Pharaohs of the Sun
Synopsis:
With control of great quantities of gold, the Egyptian Empire became the most desirable ally in the ancient World. Amenhotep III used this to his advantage and through diplomacy brought peace to the empire. But Egypt stood on the brink of a devastating revolution.

Amenhotep III”s son became pharaoh and rejected the traditional gods – including Amen – and changed his name to Akhenaten. So focused was he on his new faith, Akhenaten ignored the pleas of the Egyptian people and their allies.

His successor – a nine year old boy – inherited an empire staring disaster in the face. The priests of Amen took advantage of the boy-king, Tutankhamen, and instigated a return to the traditions of Egypt. Then, when he was old enough to reign alone, Tutankhamen suddenly and suspiciously died; and the heretical reminders of his dynasty were buried with him.

Sunday Feb 22, 7-8pm
Egypt's Golden Empire:The Last Great Pharaoh
Synopsis:
Ramses III’s reign marked the high point in the life of the New Kingdom, the high point in Egyptian culture, but also, darkly, it was the precursor to its ruin and destruction.

The distinctive and powerful figure, Ramesses II became known as the greatest pharaoh of the New Kingdom – though mostly through a reputation built from his own propaganda.

After 67 years of reign he outlived all his children – thought to number more than 100. As most subjects had been born within the lifetime of this worshipped pharaoh many thought his death marked the end of Egypt.

The New Kingdom, at least, would never recover and none of his successors could compare with Ramesses the Great. Within 150 years the golden age of the New Kingdom came to an end.

Ashly,

Your very welcome! I have been doing it for years, but now I finally have people to share this with. I plan to post the program schedule lists every month with updates to the list throughout the month as I find them.

I am looking forward to the "Egypt's Golden Empire series on PBS. I've gotten word from other forums that this program has aired some time ago not only in the states but in the UK as well. From what I've heard it was a pretty decent series with a good representation of the race of the AE's (no fair skinned, blond hair Pharaohs..Ha!),although this can be debated, as the race of AE's often becomes a subject over which much argument occurs.
