[edit] Information

Cleopatra: Portrait of a Killer Cleopatra - the most famous woman in history. We know her as a great queen, a beautiful lover and a political schemer. For 2,000 years almost all evidence of her has disappeared - until now. In one of the world's most exciting finds, archaeologists believe they have discovered the skeleton of her sister, murdered by Cleopatra and Mark Antony. From Egypt to Turkey, Neil Oliver investigates the story of a ruthless queen who would kill her own siblings for power. This is the portrait of a killer. This BBC hour-long docudrama focuses on Cleopatra's sister Arsinoe, whose recently-discovered skeleton suggested she may have been murdered. Did Cleopatra, assisted by Julius Caesar, murder her own sibling in a bid for power? Presenter Neil Oliver thinks it's possible, and sets out to paint a portrait of a beautiful, enigmatic, ruthless ego-maniac who will stop at nothing to preserve her place on the throne. His quest takes us to the ruins of Ephesus in Turkey, where Arsinoe's death is recounted in a dramatic reconstruction - Crimewatch-style. The programme also makes extensive use of technology; the University of Dundee creates a 3D reconstruction of her skull to help experts Dr Fabian Kanz and Dr Hilke Thür reach their conclusions about the mysterious sister.
