Preserving the body - Death of the Iceman - BBC

In September 1991 two hikers made a stunning discovery - a frozen body high in the Alps. It was the corpse of a stone age man dating from 5300 years ago, the oldest frozen Otzi Ice mummy ever found. This clip from the BBC Horizon programme follows a monthly examination of the body and looks at how it is being preserved.
