Dare to go on a trip through the underworld to the Egyptian afterlife and the voyage of the Book of the Dead in this marvellously depicted programme. E. A. Wallis Budge’s wonderful find in Egypt and his famous book gives us an insight into how the Egyptians charted the journey after death to the afterlife. This programme gives us a graphic and often scary insight into the trials and tribulations of the soul of the deceased.
