Program Description

Zimbabwe: Shadows and Lies FRONTLINE/World goes undercover in Zimbabwe to reveal what has happened to a country once regarded as a beacon of democracy and prosperity in Africa. Posing as tourists, reporter Alexis Bloom and producer Cassandra Herrman find a population struggling with hunger and poverty, and living in fear of a government that has become a brutal dictatorship.

Mexico: A Death In The Desert Follow FRONTLINE/World reporter Claudine LoMonaco as she retraces the tragic journey of Matias Garcia, a chili pepper farmer from a small Zapotec Indian village in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico, who crossed the border looking for work and died in the Arizona desert. LoMonaco and producer/reporter Mary Spicuzza find Garcia's family and interview his surviving brother and others. Their responses to LoMonaco reveal the dangers faced by desperate migrants.

China: The Women’s Kingdom After we launched "The Women's Kingdom" as a Web only Rough Cut video (and Fellows project) back in July 2005, many of you wrote to say how much you enjoyed this story from a remote region of southwest China, where the remarkable women of the ancient Mosuo live. It sparked lively debate about love, marriage and ancient traditions that are different from our own.
