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

There are now 10 nations in the world conducting offensive biological warfare weapons programs. Cheap -- and now technologically possible to produce and refine into weapons of mass destruction -- biological warfare has the potential to do as much damage to civilian populations as nuclear weapons. Presenting new evidence from scientists, terrorist groups, military intelligence officers and policy makers, FRONTLINE examines the threat biological warfare poses to world security and the responses some Western nations are frantically developing.
