Saturday, February 20 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on Discovery Channel

This visually stunning, Emmy®-winning series transports viewers to places many have not had the opportunity to see for themselves. Providing a rare perspective and in-depth investigation, ATLAS continues its inspirational quest to explore the history, geography and civilization of some of the world’s most sought-after destinations. The first one-hour episode journeys to the land of the Pharaohs into the living soul of modern Egypt; the following week explores the new democracy of South Africa – the Rainbow Nation; and finally ATLAS pulls back the iron curtain on Russia to tour a gulag and hear from a labour camp survivor.
