Here's an interesting article on Harry Burton.

The guy playing Harry in the BBC drama was a lovely guy husband of the line producer.

I got paid £50 for two of my goats appearing in the opening scene of The Wicked Lady (1983) starring Faye Dunaway, Alan Bates and Oliver Tobias.

Michael Winner was wearing a T shirt which said on the front:
There are 2 ways of doing a thing. My way ………….. and on the back - Wrong!

I've taken that to heart. ;) :lol:

I was up in Cambridge last week and attended this exhibition of Harry Burton's work. It is presented in a small room on the first floor of the museum affectionately locally as the Maa. The room area takes up as much ground as the recent British Museum exhibition of so called modern life in Egypt. (incidentally, the only one gallery lecture there, was in Arabic only, what a joke.)

In my opinion this exhibition in Cambridge is not worth the visit, very little information is given, we are told a telephone was set up in the Valley on 7th November 1923. The reason why some of Burton's photographs were 'stage' being that electricity was not installed in the Valley until much later.

There is one little interesting detail, that is mentioned by Burton after all those years of working with Carter on the Tomb, is that he, Burton was paid the agreed original wage from start, but never received any extra 'bonus' what so ever.

Like everything one ever investigates with Carter there are always two answers, or more and very difficult to find the truth.

For example, the building known as Carter House was built at expense to his sponsor as a result of the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamoun, not true, it was built by Carter from money through and as a direct result of his association with Lord Carnarvon and certainly built years earlier.
