Nefertiti and Akhenaten, Still Lost?

Thanks Yuya,

I think this aired in the States already, and is a very good program. It's a continuation of the Joann Fletcher debate over the "Elder Lady" and "Younger Lady" mummies. Apparently there is now a stronger case that the Elder Lady is Queen Tiye. The identity of the Younger Lady is still unknown, but very unlikely to be Nefertiti.

I don't recall if this program also presented the new examination of the KV55 mummy. Dr. Hawass now wants it to be identified with Akhenaten rather than Smenkhkare, but in my opinion the evidence still favors Smenkhkare.
