Mummifying Alan: Egypt's Last Secret.

Should be an interesting documentary on Ch4 at 9pm this evening where Alan Billis has given permission for his body to be used in an attempt to recreate the ancient practice of mummification.

Very interesting program. If anyone wants to know about body farms and general death facts and stories I recommend reading .. Stiff: The Curious Lives of the Human Cadavers, which is a surprisingly funny and really interesting book.

"interesting"
