Premiered January 1983 Since January 1983, FRONTLINE has served as American public television's - PBS - flagship public affairs series.

- Program Description
On the one-year anniversary of the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings - culminating in the historic confrontation over Anita Hill's sexual harassment charges - FRONTLINE charts the course of the hearings and explores how the bitter nomination battle reached deep into the psyche of black America. While the Thomas-Hill confrontation was reported as a story about the rift between the sexes, the dynamics of race - being black in America - were at the real heart of the story.
