A rough cut of Tom Blackmore's film Last Call for Nefertiti,  which followed Nicholas Reeves attempt to find the ancient  Egyptian Queen's tomb between 1998 and 2002.

 

This cut was assembled in 2006 after a visit to Egypt with Casson & The Brannick Academy to film the songs.

Following distribution to broadcasters and distributors this cut elicited the following comments:

 

'Thank you for sending me this very unusual film..  It is very bold and inventive and at first I thought it was slightly mad.  But it does have a creative brio which is very infectious…. This is very original work and intercutting of serious analysis of archaeological digs with cabaret riffs and phrases from songs is daring for sure…. '

RE Thompson Storyville Commissioning Executive, BBC 4

 

'The Commissioning team here have now had a chance to consider this and the feelingis that it’s an unusual and interesting meld of history and performance. It’s clear the passion with which it has been made has led to an individual and unique film.' Ali Pugh BBC  

 

'I have screened your DVD and was pleasantly surprised to say the least. I didn’t know what to expect, but what I saw wasn’t what I could possibly imagine. To tell you straight it wasn’t what I am looking for, but nonetheless very entertaining.'
