Good documentary, but...

"This 1978 TV production gives an overview of the exhibition of treasures from the young pharao's tomb that was on a world tour at the time. The treasures are as impressive now as they were then. The picture quality, however, is no better than VHS. No attempt at restauration or enhancement seems to have been made. Even if your interest in King Tut is high you should think before buying."

"Hosted by Orson Welles, Tut: The Boy King is the original award-wining documentary on the discovery and contents of the Egyptian tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamun. This beautifully produced DVD edition is enhanced with updated features which include "The Remarkable Discovery", "The Mysterious Life and Death of Tutankhamen"; Enduring Questions About the King", "Tutankhamun Timeline", "Mapping the Tomb", and a Photo Gallery. Tut: The Boy King will prove to be an enduringly popular addition to community library Video/DVD collections.

"if you saw this on tv. you will remeber mr. welle's great voice...he really makes the young king live again. he tells you about the king, you are there as they show pictures of the descovery of the tomb. pictures of how each item looked like in the tomb, then today. if you where lucky enough to see these treasures that toured our country, which l was. it is a real joy to see them here again and take your time over each one. bar none he explains every one as it comes almost alive. order this and just enjoy, as tut lives again."
