Peter Souza is never far behind President Obama. In fact, sometimes he’s ahead of him. As the President’s chief White House photographer, Souza is the President’s shadow.

With unprecedented access, National Geographic follows the President’s photographer inside the Obama White House—aboard Air Force One, backstage at the State of the Union, and into the heart of the West Wing. It’s a behind-the-scenes look at the everyday grit of the American presidency and a chance to see what it’s like to cover the most powerful man in the world—for history. Narrated by Morgan Freeman.

The lost tomb of Genghis Khan, Mongolia's best-kept secret and only remaining tie to its spiritual and political forefather, could be unearthed and destroyed by looters at any time. Can engineer and explorer Albert Lin, equipped with cutting-edge technology and just a handful of obscure clues from ancient texts, find and protect the tomb of the Great Khan before it is possibly destroyed? National Geographic joins Lin on a seemingly impossible quest: to locate the tomb of Genghis Khan without being allowed to dig, somewhere in a territory that measures thousands of square miles in area. Lin's research leads him to search for a lost mountain-the Burkhan Khaldun-in the heart of the "forbidden zone." But to get there he must first conquer a series of natural obstacles, including an inhospitable landscape, swollen rivers, and violent storms. It is on the Burkhan Khaldun that Lin makes his most remarkable discovery, one that may solve an 800-year old mystery and cause waves in the archaeological community for decades to come.
