Asia and Africa: Living On The Edge For the last year and a half, reporter Martin Smith has been investigating global climate change for Heat, a two-hour FRONTLINE broadcast to air this fall. In "Living on the Edge," Smith travels to the foothills of the Himalayas, to parched areas of Eastern Africa and to the Namibian coast to share some devastating field notes from this looming environmental catastrophe.

India: Design Like You Give A Damn FRONTLINE/World reporter Singeli Agnew travels to Tamil Nadu, India, to see the work of Architects for Humanity, a nonprofit that links local communities in need with a network of architects excited to help.

Jesus In China As the world spotlight hits China this summer, reporter Evan Osnos goes inside one of the country's most important, but least understood movements -- China's underground churches. A joint project of FRONTLINE/WORLD and the Chicago Tribune, "Jesus in China" examines the wave of Christianity that has been sweeping across the country in recent years and the different ways the Chinese ruling party -- officially atheist -- is now racing to control it. Probing this volatile religious and political fault line, Osnos travels to the "Bethlehem of China" in Henan Province, gains access to unregistered "megachurches" in China's fastest-growing cities, and finds a number of Communist Party members and independent activists willing to come out publicly as Christians. Also, in this episode, two more stories from a small planet.
