Program Number


Series Description

Premiered January 1983 Since January 1983, FRONTLINE has served as American public television's - PBS - flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature over 23 years is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience. Series release date: 1/1983

Program Description

FRONTLINE follows the struggle to bring war criminals from the former Yugoslavia to justice and examines how the failure to arrest and prosecute these men has called into question the seriousness of the West's commitment to human rights. While the War Crimes Tribunal in the Hague stands ready to prosecute those who committed atrocities in the former Yugoslavia, Bosnia's most notorious alleged war criminals, Radovan Karadzic and Ratko Mladic, remain at large.

"The World's Most Wanted Man" --FRONTLINE examines the dramatic hunt for Radovan Karadzic, the notorious Bosnian Serb leader indicted for atrocities by the War Crimes Tribunal in the Hague, but still at large in the former Yugoslavia. The film investigates Karadzic's rise to power, the war crimes committed during his rule, and why NATO and U.S. forces have failed to arrest him.
