- Program Description
"Frontline" investigates the new nuclear nightmare of the post-Cold War era. While the fear of nuclear annihilation has faded, the stockpile of 1,400 tons of weapons-grade plutonium and highly enriched uranium -- enough nuclear material to make roughly 100,000 weapons -- is vulnerable to theft in the former Soviet Union. Top American officials call its potential diversion to rogue states or terrorist groups a major threat to U.S. national security. "Frontline" examines the most serious case of nuclear smuggling in Russia to date and explores the perilous state of nuclear security in a country already rife with chaos and corruption.
