- Program Number
- 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
FRONTLINE explores the bitter divide between military and civilian attitudes of what, where, when, and why America employs military force. Correspondent Peter J. Boyer explores the gulf between what American diplomats want and what the military is prepared to deliver. Boyer follows the inevitable collision from Vietnam to Bosnia between diplomat Richard Holbrooke and Admiral Leighton Smith. Their careers, and ultimate clash, represent the most vivid example of this critical foreign policy dilemma.
