Broadcast: January 11, 1979

The excitement and interest in one particular Egyptian queen, who ruled Egypt fourteen centuries before Christ, would have never begun, had it not been for the discovery of an extraordinary plaster and painted portrait of Nefertiti herself, sculpted in sinuous relief. Go to any museum today, and you'll find a reproduction of this head and shoulders of a woman who can rightly be called the first free-spirited, emancipated female in history. If she lived today, aside from her stunning looks and bearing, she would be regarded as most modern.
