BERING SEA GOLD: UNDER THE ICE was the #1 non-sports program in cable among P25-54 delivery and #2 among M25-54 delivery, behind only YUKON MEN.

BERING SEA GOLD: UNDER THE ICE follows three gold mining teams run by driven dredge captains whose very livelihoods depend on mining this wet and frozen gold. Split second thinking, extreme focus, and team work are key to staying alive under the ice. The risks are great, and the payoff is even greater.

In new Discovery series YUKON MEN, the residents of Tanana, Alaska are about to face one of the most brutal winters on record. People struggle to find food and heat; battle life-threatening predators just to survive. Boys grow into men quickly here because they must help the family survive. Father-son bonding and tensions take on a new meaning in this environment. The stakes are high in Tanana, and to defy the odds, to survive and to battle the harsh Alaskan wilderness, the residents must overcome obstacles, stick together and prevail.

BERING SEA GOLD: UNDER THE ICE returns this Friday, September 21 for its season finale at 9PM ET/PT, followed by YUKON MEN at 10PM ET/PT.
