Over 3000 years ago, Nefertiti, 'The Perfect One', and her husband, Akhenaten, the radical king, tore ancient Egypt apart and then vanished. They threw out the old government and the old capital city and even replaced the old gods.Update: Channel now corrected - thanks Dave!
In less than 20 years they turned Egypt on its head, before disappearing from history. But where did they end up? The debate has raged for decades.
Now a brand new scientific investigation brings state-of-the-art CT scans to the Valley of the Kings on the hunt for this mysterious family of pharaohs: a family most famous for the little boy, believed to be Akhenaten's son, who would grow up to be King Tutankhamun.
Using non-invasive 3D volumetric imagery, the team, led by Dr Zahi Hawass, Egypt's top archaeologist, head to dark and mysterious tombs to investigate mummies that could be Nefertiti and Akhenaten.
Hawass and his team unearth a clear case of murder, the possible identity of a Pharaoh and a link that ties them all together. Have they uncovered the family of King Tut?
