There is a documentary on Five at 8pm Tuesday 6th (today) about KV5.  The guide says:

Documentary telling the story of the discovery of an ancient Egyptian tomb in the Valley of the Kings in 2005 - the first ancient tomb to be discovered in the valley since 1922.

I have seen this a few times and recommend it to all. Kent Weekes plays a large part (of course)telling us about the history of the discovery of the extent of KV5 and what they aim to do in future seasons. A section is about Amenhirkhopshef and the Exodus scenario. For those happy to look into "possibilities" then you should really enjoy this documentary.

Kate- are you sure that the documentary wasn't the one about KV63 and not KV5?

I have seen both recently and the one i watched this week was the Otto Schaden (and Co.) one giving the full KV63 rundown.

Either way- they are both very good, even if Dr Hawass's pet theories about the Armana Period seem to appear as absolute fact at times, which is very frustrating indeed. "KV63 Coffin belongs to Kiya", etc, etc

The KV63 documentary has been on Sky a few times (including the +1 channels). The KV5 one though i have seen numerous times on SKY and the Channel 5 one, so they will most definitely appear again.....
