The month of February 2016 will see National Geographic Abu Dhabi dedicating a sizable share of its airtime to subjects focusing primarily on Egypt. New seasons of the audience favorites will be retained, while new reality entertainment shows, living up to the different tastes of viewers, will air for the first time.
National Geographic Abu Dhabi will be airing shows over a four hour period, recounting stories of Ancient Egypt, its hidden secrets, the most important discoveries of that era, and ancient handicrafts. Among the most remarkable of these shows is the one-hour "Ultimate Tutankhamun." World renowned archeologists will apply 21st-century research methods to unearth ancient history and conduct a criminal investigation to uncover the real reason behind the death of Tutankhamun.
To get the whole picture of Egypt, National Geographic Abu Dhabi will air a one-hour show titled "Time Scanners- Egyptian Pyramids", during which optical scanning experts will use state-of-the-art 3D technology to put the architectural wonders that were built throughout the years under the microscope in addition to discovering the secrets of the remarkable architectural designs and the construction works of the most prominent structures in the world. The team will head to Egypt to uncover how the simple, limestone-cased pyramids became one of the most fascinating structures of the ancient world.
"Saving Egypt’s oldest pyramids” is another equally noteworthy show to be aired for the first time starting February 9, 2016 (22:00 hrs UAE time). The show will shed light on the Saqqara Pyramid or Step Pyramid, which has been, throughout the years, the subject of plunder, earthquakes, and erosion, dooming the pyramid to a destiny of destruction. Will experts fight the battle, save the pyramid, and preserve its legacy?
