Eidos Interactive and Core Design announce the Official Lara Croft Documentary: a one-hour television programme that examines the unique phenomenon of Lara Croft, revealing how she was invented, developed and launched into mainstream contemporary culture to become the most successful cyber character to crossover into global marketing, advertising and ultimately Hollywood.

For the first time, the 'real' story of Lara Croft is told - Lara's original creator details her design process and Core Design's conceptual artists illustrate her development over the following years, including a preview of the 'next-generation' Lara Croft 3D Model. The team reveals the truths behind Lara's personal history and how it was established and further developed following the public's thirst for knowledge about her. Lara Croft's personality and physique are put under scrutiny as Lethal and Loaded investigates the unprecedented obsessive behaviour and emotional reaction that she stirs in fans from all walks of life.

The programme also goes behind-the-scenes to show how the official Lara Croft look-alike models are selected and trained - and what they really think of the woman whose boots they have stepped into. Lara's prominence as a modern cultural icon is examined and her mainstream media status is illustrated via press articles, product endorsements, celebrity appearances and finally clips from Paramount's Tomb Raider movie, including an interview with its Oscar-winning star, Angelina Jolie.
