Program Description

Iran: FRONTLINE/World and BBC reporter Paul Kenyon travels deep into Iran to investigate charges that Iran is secretly developing a nuclear bomb. With exclusive access to a U.N. inspection team, Kenyon visits Iran's most sensitive nuclear sites and reports on the escalating diplomatic tensions surrounding the discovery of the facilities.

Mexico: FRONTLINE/World reporter Macarena Hernandez travels to the Mexican state of Chihuahua to meet the man who brought fame and prosperity to Mata Ortiz, his rural village. As a young boy, 40 years ago, Juan Quezada discovered ancient painted pots in a cave in the rugged hills near his home. Quezada toiled to recreate the pottery methods of the Paquime Indians, a culture that died out centuries ago. After becoming an international pottery star, Quezada trained others in his village. Now, Mata Ortiz is home to several hundred master artisans, and Quezada is a local hero.

Kyrgyzstan: FRONTLINE/World reporter Petr Lom travels to Kyrgyzstan, where an ancient tradition of bride kidnapping, banned by the Soviets, is resurgent. Lom gets inside families to talk with kidnapped brides -- those who have managed to escape from their captors as well as those who are making homes with their new husbands.
