- Program Description
Curse Of The Inca Gold: Lowell Bergman, reporter for FRONTLINE/World and The New York Times , travels to Peru to uncover the story of a secret battle for Yanacocha, the world's richest gold mine. The battle was won by Newmont Mining of Denver, Colo., which has since become the world's most profitable gold-mining company. Newmont says that it operates using U.S. environmental and ethical standards overseas, but insiders say that just has not been true.
Ukarine: A Murder In Kyiv: It was just a year ago, in November 2004, when hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians poured into Kyiv's Independence Square in what became known as the Orange Revolution. At the center was Viktor Yushchenko, the reform presidential candidate. Soon after the Orange Revolution swept him into office, the new president held a press conference in which he pledged to end decades of corruption. He also vowed to solve the mysterious murder of a journalist that has haunted Ukraine for years. Georgy Gongadze was a crusading journalist whose death helped spark the Orange Revolution. But today, despite the new president's pledge, Gongadze's murder remains curiously unsolved.
