TV Review: The Pharoah and the Showman

http://tinyurl.com/v8vmc (smh.com.au)
"BBC documentary re-enacts the discovery and resurrection of Egypt's greatest monuments by Giovanni Belzoni, a failed carnival strongman hired to move a large head of Ramses for the British consul. It's a bit of tenuous link between the two men of the title but Belzoni ends up becoming one of the greatest Egyptian explorers, assisted by his wife, Sarah."
See the above page for brief additional details.
