- 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. A HOUSE FOR HAJI BABA - After reporting the fall of the Taliban in Afghanistan for National Public Radio, Sarah Chayes made a life-changing decision. Moved by the plight of a devastated country—and a personal request from the family of new Afghan President Hamid Karzai—Chayes decided on a change of career. She stayed in Afghanistan, became a humanitarian, and turned her attention to rebuilding a village of destroyed homes near the former Taliban stronghold of Kandahar. MOSCOW: RICH IN RUSSIA - Sabrina Tavernise, a New York Times reporter who covered Russia for six years, meets the young capitalists who are remaking Moscow and examines the rise of Russia's oligarchs -- the men who became wealthy during the wild privatization period after the fall of communism. She interviews Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the richest man in Russia and principal owner of Yukos, Russia's largest oil company, who was recently arrested by Russian authorities. Tavernise also meets Boris Berezovsky, a billionaire who fled to London, where he has just been granted political asylum.
