Program Description

Pakistan: On A Razor's Edge: Follow FRONTLINE / World reporter and producer Sharmeen Obaid to her native Pakistan as she investigates the clashes between President Pervez Musharraf, a key U.S. ally, and the increasingly powerful Islamic fundamentalists who oppose him. Obaid visits the scene of the most recent assassination attempt on Musharraf, meets with key military leaders and interviews a clandestine jihadi fighting a holy war in neighboring Kashmir. Kyrgyzstan: The Kidnapped Bride: FRONTLINE / World reporter Petr Lom travels to Kyrgyzstan, where an ancient tradition of bride kidnapping, banned by the Soviets, is resurgent. Lom gets inside families to talk with kidnapped brides -- those who have managed to escape from their captors as well as those who are making homes with their new husbands. Kenya: Run, Lornah, Run: Kenyan men have long ranked among the world's best long distance runners, but until recently, Kenyan women have been confined to traditional roles at home and on the farm. FRONTLINE/World reporter Alexis Bloom journeys to the mountain village of Iten in Kenya's northwest highlands, where one of Kenya's first great female marathoners, Lornah Kiplagat, using her prize money, established and operates a camp to train the next generation of women runners.
