This film is a real one of a kind. UK scientist thinks he's discovered the secrets of Egyptian mummy making, but needs a subject to prove his theories with - enter Alan, terminally ill taxi driver from Torquay who volunteers his remains upon his dying. The 2011 TV broadcast caused a sensation in the UK, and in 2012 the film went on to win the Royal Television Society award for best Science programme, beating the BBC's mighty 'Frozen Planet' in the process.
Despite its graphic imagery, the film is at heart, a touching, human story.
