Museum Secrets: Egyptian Museum
We search for the lost tomb of Ramesses the Great. Then, we recreate the last violent moments of an ancient king to discover if he was a brave or cowardly man. We discover how a poor Pharaoh amassed a hoard of gold to rival King Tut, and enter an underground animal necropolis to find out why ancient Egyptians mummified cats, baboons and falcons by the millions. Cryptic inscriptions discovered on a pyramid's capstone reveal the secret of the pyramid's spiritual power.

Animal Mummies: Egypt's Dark Secret
Modern advances in imaging technology are allowing Dr Lidija McKnight and her team to create accurate 3D images of ancient Egyptian animal mummies. The biggest survey of its kind, this study aims to discover the truth about the strange role animals played in ancient Egyptian beliefs.

Frozen Planet – Summer
It's high summer in the polar regions and the sun never sets. Vast hordes of summer visitors cram a lifetime of drama into one long, magical day. They must feed, fight and rear their young in this brief window of plenty.

Frozen Planet – Autumn
For the animals of the polar regions, autumn means dramatic battles and epic journeys. Time is running out – the Arctic Ocean is freezing over and the sea ice is advancing around Antarctica by 4km per day.
