THE NILE: EGYPT'S GREAT RIVER WITH BETTANY HUGHES  (Channel 5)

The Ancient Egyptians have left behind an astonishing legacy of tombs, temples and artefacts all rich in detail and symbolism that tell the stories of life and death on the banks of the River Nile.

Beginning at the mouth of the mighty River Nile, Bettany travels almost 1,000 miles on a series of boats (traditional and modern) to Egypt’s border with Sudan. Stopping off at the most iconic, dazzling and important sites along the way, Bettany will tell the fascinating, gruesome and most surprising stories of the great Ancient Egyptian Empire.
