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" examines the Navy after Tailhook, an investigation of the seismic shock caused by the sex scandal involving naval aviators five years ago and its continuing impact on the Navy. "The Navy Blues" explores the controversy over the post- Tailhook mandate to introduce women into combat roles and positions of greater authority. The program also looks at how these pressures weighed on Admiral Mike Boorda, the Navy's chief of naval operations, who committed suicide this past spring.
