Quite good program on UK TV yesterday - I think it will be a series.
They said that contrary to the original autopsy all his organs had been removed. Did they mean all or all apart from the heart.
He seems a prime candidate for genetic matching to see if he was Ramesses IIIs rebelious son.

What program was that? I've seen one on the screaming mummy and they erred towards it being that of the Ramesses III's son who was involved in the asassination plot against Ramesses III. The same rebellious dude, I take it? Interesting stuff!

What was the programme called and on which channel tnrees?
I'd like to look out for it as they tend to repeat such programmes, don't they?

My reply seems to have got lost. They did think a son of Ramesses III was likely but another theory was someone who died abroad & the locals who did not practice mummification did the best they could.
There is another program today (Thurs 20th Nov 2008) at 8:00 on ch 5 - King Scorpion - which ties in with the other posts we have been having about scorpions.

Ah...yes! I remember that! That sounds like the program I saw. I'll look out for the Scorpion King tonight. Thanks for the heads up.

I found last night's program very interesting.
Yes, darn football :(
I can't find the other two programs listed for tonight and 23rd but they do tend to repeat them quite often, don't they. 8)

I saw that too. It's always annoying when they take good programmes off for blooming football. :cry:

Bob Brier disagrees with much that was said on that TV special. For his comments, see here:
