A WWL-TV Special Project
written & narrated Phil Johnson
filmed & edited by Jim Tolhurst
Filmed on location in Egypt and at the New Orleans Museum of Art. This documentary was timed to coincide with the traveling King Tut exhibit when it visited New Orleans.
In 1978, Tutankhamun, Live Forever, was released on videotape under the new title King Tut: Tomb of Treasure. The only change made to the original documentary is that in this release, by Public Media Video, a new narration track by Allen Luden has been added.
