I have to set the Tivo to record this tonite:

Could the fabled lost city of Atlantis have been located? Using satellite photography, ground-penetrating radar and underwater technology, experts are now surveying marshlands in Spain to look for proof of the ancient city. If the team can match geological formations to Plato’s descriptions and date artifacts back to the time of Atlantis, we may be closer to solving one of the world’s greatest mysteries.

Is the lost city of Atlantis buried beneath the sea? Archaeologists are setting sail to find out.

Some archaeologists and experts believe Atlantis is hidden under a river delta in southern Spain.
