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

It is one of the most shameful stories of the post-Cold War world. Eight-hundred thousand Tutsis were slaughtered by the Hutu majority in Rwanda while the West turned a blind eye. As the U.N.'s Genocide Convention -- created to make sure genocide would never happen again -- marks its 50th anniversary, FRONTLINE examines the role of Britain, France, the U.S. and the U.N. as they ignored the warnings and evidence of impending massacre and looks at how two detectives called in by the Convention to investigate the Rwandan genocide came to fear the U.N. itself didn't want them to succeed.
