What's New Next Week? June 6, 2019

Rick Steves on the steps of the Altes Museum, on Berlin's Museum Island.


Next week, GPB takes viewers on a stunning aerial tour of our great state in a brand new special, and follows Rick Steves into Europe's dark past. Take a look below at what we've got coming up.


Rick Steves' Fascism in Europe - Sunday, June 9 at 1 PM
In this one-hour special, travel expert Rick Steves travels back a century to learn how fascism rose and then fell in Europe — taking millions of people with it. Trace fascism's history from its roots in the turbulent aftermath of World War I, when masses of angry people rose up, to the rise of charismatic leaders who manipulated that anger, the totalitarian societies they built, and the brutal measures they used to enforce their ideology. See the horrific consequences: genocide and total war, and be inspired by the stories of those who resisted. 
Along the way, visit poignant sights throughout Europe relating to fascism, and talk with Europeans whose families lived through those times. The goal: to learn from the hard lessons of 20th-century Europe, and to recognize that ideology in the 21st century.
Georgia from the Air - Monday, June 10 at 8 PM
Georgia from the Air, brought to you by Georgia Public Broadcasting and Red Sky Productions, is an aerial survey of the entire state of Georgia, filmed using the latest drone technology. Fly through the treetops and along city sidewalks. From the coast to the mountains, see first hand all the wonder that Georgia has to offer.
The one hour special was filmed over the course of an entire year allowing for filming of key seasonal elements such as fall foliage in the northern mountains, frozen waterfalls, and springtime flowers in the Longleaf pine forest of the coastal plain.
