- 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 investigates the aftermath of the unsuccessful 1993 raid by U.S. Army Rangers in Mogadishu to capture the elusive Somali warlord General Mohammed Farah Aidid. Active participants in the operation -- Pentagon and White House officials, UN representatives and military personnel -- offer fresh perspectives and new revelations on the firefight that resulted in the loss of 18 American soldiers. FRONTLINE measures how the failed raid on Mogadishu has shaped public opinion and sharply influenced United States foreign policy in other global trouble spots.
