Collection of documentaries which investigate the myth of Atlantis, an ancient Greek city said to have been destroyed in a day. 'Discovering Atlantis' follows an archaeological dig in Bolivia, where the apparent discovery of a lost civilisation leads some to postulate that it could be Atlantis. 'Atlantis: Mystery of the Minoans' looks at the story of archaeologists Arthur Evans and Spyridon Marinatos, who respectively discovered a lost civilisation in Crete and developed a theory that this civilisation might be Atlantis. Finally, 'The Lost City of Atlantis' sees journalist Olly Steeds investigate Plato's claim that Atlantis was destroyed in a single day and night; what combination of natural forces would be required to so quickly wipe away an entire city?
