This is another BBC radio broadcast. The main segment starts at 26:14. It doesn't add much new but we do have the oddity of a BBC journalist saying (starting 28:34) that the Egyptian Museum was well-protected against theft but Dr Hawass sharply contradicts. It's a strange world when an official's reputation is best defended by saying that a museum he was responsible for was vulnerable to illegal entry. Again, Hawass says that had it been an inside job, they would have taken a masterpiece ... erm, not famous statues of Tutankhamun then.
