- Series Description
Documentary series with international stories. Predecessor to FRONTLINE, executive producer David Fanning. Five seasons from 1978-1981. "WORLD has presented a series of international documentaries.

- Program Description
Until this century, Sweden was an underdeveloped country in a distant corner of the world. Eighty percent of its people lived on agriculture and craft. It was a country of mass unemployment, slums, and class differences. When the industrial revolution came - it was swift and dazzling. Within a few decades Sweden has become a highly industrialized land and has achieved the highest per capita GNP in the world. This program studies the society and its political system which combines free enterprise with socialism.
