DVD Review: King Tutankhamun - The Mystery Unsealed

"One interesting point is the straightforward debunking of the entire 'curse' story, which basically gets appropriately short shrift. The one point that may cause some viewers discomfort are rare shots of the unwrapped mummy itself, which had been dismembered by Carter in order to remove it from its coffin. The film winds up with excavations of a nearby site in 1995 that had been buried by Carter's rubble from the excavations for Tut, which promised equally interesting finds. It would have been nice to include a short update on this point to let the viewer know what, if anything, has been found in the last decade."
