Tutankhamun: The Truth Uncovered, BBC1, review: Not much of a historical hunk

You know that beautiful symmetrical golden burial mask of Tutankhamun? The one the whole world associates with the 18th-dynasty Pharaoh? Let’s just say it’s very flattering. The real King Tut – or at least the real King Tut as re-created by imaging software for Tutankhamun: The Truth Uncovered (Sun BBC1) – was buck-toothed and club-footed with womanly hips and sizable moobs. Not much of a historical hunk, then.
