Transit at Istanbul Ataturk

I finally get to Turkey, unfortunately it is only to change planes.

I have a flight from London to Istanbul Ataturk airport, changing planes for Cape Town.
I can find very little information on the airport website about transiting. Do I need to go through Immigration on arrival, and back through departures?

I have just over 2 hours on the way out, but on my return journey the difference is only 1h40 - is this going to be too tight?
All Flights are with Turkish Airlines.

Any help appreciated.

As a long as you are just transiting through the airport you simply go to where your next flight leaves from and you don't have to go through any customs or immigration at that point
