Program Description

FRONTLINE/World, a new documentary series turns its lens on the global community. The series will cover countries and cultures rarely covered by the U.S. media. Co-produced by WGBH and KQED. Party of God - As the Bush administration presses Syria to sever its ties to terrorist groups, FRONTLINE/World offers a rare glimpse inside the radical Islamic movement that Syria has armed and trained for years: Hezbollah. Reporter David Lewis travels to Lebanon to find the group, known as the "Party of God," which some in Washington consider "the A-team of terrorists." Coffee country (Alt. title: Bitter Grounds) - As a worldwide glut of coffee beans forces Central American farmers and their families off their land, FRONTLINE/World's Sam QuiƱones follows a group of gourmet coffee importers who advocate "fair trade" as a partial solution to the crisis. He meets tasters, buyers and indigenous farmers in remote coffee-growing regions. DREAMS OF CHOMOLONGMA - Fifty years after the first successful ascent of Mount Everest, FRONTLINE/World presents the struggle of a team of young Sherpa women attempting to summit the peak whose name in Nepali is Chomolongma, or "Mother Goddess of the Universe." FRONTLINE/World climbs with the team as they confront storms, sickness, fear and the obstacles facing women in traditional Sherpa culture.
