Journey Through The Valley Of The Kings

Discovery, 10pm

A must-see for any armchair explorer, this programme takes viewers on a journey into the burial ground of the ancient world's most powerful rulers - the pharaohs of Egypt. Computer graphics and dramatic reconstructions are used to show the world beneath the surface of the Valley of the Kings, riddled with more than 60 treasure-filled tombs.

Earth Ride

Pearl, 9.30pm

This programme propels viewers into the biggest water ride in the world. Follow a drop of your own sweat as it becomes part of a river, a flash flood, a waterspout and a hurricane, enters a glacier in a blizzard and exits in an avalanche.
