- 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 marks the first anniversary of the Iraqi War with a two- hour documentary investigation that recounts the key strategies, battles, and turning points of the war from both sides of the battlefield. Through firsthand accounts from many of the war's key participants-from strategists in Washington to the soldiers who actually fought the battles - "The Invasion of Iraq" promises to be a definitive television history of America's most recent war. “To date, most attempts to understand the war have focused on pre-war intelligence and the political process that led to war,” producer Richard Sanders says. “‘The Invasion of Iraq’ takes a different route, chronicling the experiences of the troops on the front line. It also shows how the false assessment of Saddam Hussein’s alleged weapons of mass destruction was just the first in a series of major intelligence failures that shaped the course of the war and the unstable occupation America is now mired in.”
