Program Description

FRONTLINE/WORLD goes inside a terror cell accused of planning mayhem and mass murder in Atlanta and Toronto in summer 2006. Self-proclaimed Muslim fundamentalist Mubin Shaikh, who spent two years inside the cell as a police informant, tells FRONTLINE/WORLD about the cell's plots and politics. Intelligence agencies consider the cell to be the most serious homegrown cell discovered so far in North America. Like a clone of cells that have grown all over Europe, the cell attracts clusters of young men, often of immigrant parents, living in the suburbs, who reject their parents' culture and modern consumerism to become a "Jihad generation." In a co-production with the CBC's The Fifth Estate, FRONTLINE/WORLD follows these radical Islamists from Atlanta and Toronto to the training grounds of Pakistan.

Moscow's version of Sex and the City explores what it means to be a young, single woman in modern-day Russia. Traveling to Moscow, filmmaker and FRONTLINE/World reporter Victoria Gamburg introduces us to the fictional characters and the stars of Russia's popular TV series, Balzac Age, and reveals how the show compares with the real-life experiences of single women making a life for themselves in Moscow.
