Discovery Channel's Latest Egyptology Offerings
Discovery frequently create and air programmes about Egyptology, which are sold on to other channels as well, and therefore receieve a very wide audience world-wide. The most notorious of these programmes was probably Joann Fletcher's "Nefertiti Revealed". This reasonably detailed article previews Discovery's latest offerings - five new documentaries and a 13-part series. It is an interesting review of the approach taken by Discovery not only to Egyptology but also to target audiences. One of the programmes covers Hawass and his attempts to recover items removed illegally from the country.
