Hidden Away:Slave GirlsMothers in Prison<p>UNICEF estimates that some 246 million children are engaged in child labour worldwide.&nbsp; India has the world&#39;s largest population of child labourers-somewhere between 60 and 100 million children toiling in homes, factories, shops, fields, brothels, and on the streets.&nbsp; Many of them are slaves.&nbsp; And while slavery is a tragedy for any child, the horrors girls encounter are particularly shocking. They&#39;re sold as bonded laborers, as domestic workers and even as sex slaves.<br /><br />In poverty-stricken countries, such as India, where parents are forced to choose between allowing their children to starve and sending them out to work, is there any solution?&nbsp; We&#39;ll travel to India to find out, where our journey will take us to the front lines in the battle against child slavery.<br /></p><p>&nbsp;</p>12hidden-away.jpg1 X 52 minsRAKLHI VARMA021010000A National Geographic Television Production242Tales from the Tomb: Mystery Mummy<p>He&#39;s Ancient Egypt&#39;s mystery man: a 3500-year-old mummy with no name, no identity at all. Yet he&#39;s found in a secret cache with some of Egypt&#39;s most famous pharaohs. A closer look reveals an even stranger clue: He was hastily and clumsily mummified. And in ancient Egypt, an anonymous and improper burial was a fate worse than death. Was this man purposely denied the one thing every Egyptian most wanted: the chance for eternal life? In this hour of Tales from the Tomb: Mystery Mummy, we&#39;ll delve into the case of Egypt&#39;s most famous John Doe and weigh the conflicting theories about him. Who was he? How did he die? What crime might he have committed to warrant such an ignoble end? </p><p>Our story goes step-by-step through the evidence and shows how the latest scientific discoveries are shedding new light on this baffling case. Was this mystery mummy a human sacrifice, killed to accompany one of Egypt&#39;s great pharaohs to the afterlife? Until recently no one would have considered such a possibility. But new discoveries at the burial ground at Abydos are proving that the Egyptians - like the Inca of South America - practiced this rare and violent ritual. The evidence is compelling: our unknown mummy was young and his skeleton shows no signs of a traumatic death, just like the victims at Abydos. But experts believe the Egyptians ceased practising human sacrifice not long after they started - 1500 years before our mystery mummy was born. And there&#39;s another reason to discount this theory: in ancient Egypt, even human sacrifices - unlike our mystery man - were given the honour of marked graves. </p><p>We visit the tomb where this unusual mummy was discovered. There&#39;s little doubt he was royal, which makes his burial even more mysterious. We examine his body and see how he was handled just after his death. His embalmers dispensed almost entirely with the traditional 70-day mummification ritual. Why treat a royal in such fashion? Perhaps he wasn&#39;t an Egyptian to begin with. It&#39;s a theory that springs from new interpretations of ancient Hittite records. Not long after the death of the boy king, Tutankhamen, his young wife wrote to the Hittite&#39;s king. She requested he send one of his sons to marry her. The records show the king complied, but his son, Prince Zannanza, never made it. He was murdered as soon as he reached Egypt. Did the Egyptians quickly mummify Zannanza, perhaps with plans to send his body home?</p><p>We find an even more fascinating story in the records of the Egyptians themselves: the case of a young prince guilty of what may have been the worst possible crime, murder of the king. His name was Pentawere, son of Ramses III. Outraged that Ramses did not chose her son to succeed him, Pentawere&#39;s mother, Queen Teye, led a plot to poison her husband. But the traitors were discovered and promptly executed. What happened to Pentawere? He was granted leniency&nbsp; -&nbsp; perhaps because he was not the instigator, perhaps because he was of royal blood. He was allowed to commit suicide, probably by drinking poison. As a royal, Pentawere would have been entitled to burial, but not necessarily an honourable one. To stop him from troubling his father in the next world, his name would have most certainly been erased. The evidence is circumstantial. We may never really know who the mystery mummy really is. But it&#39;s an intriguing possibility: He may very well be the lost son of the murdered pharaoh, Ramses III.</p>CivilisationsHistorytalesfromtomb.jpg1 x 52minsCLARE NOLAN121000000NGT&F60
