Program Description

Iraq: Nick Hughes visits the chaotic streets of Baghdad for FRONTLINE/World to find out how journalists survive in a war in which they have become targets. He travels with men and women whose quest for the story not only requires body armor as a tool of the trade, but also can lead to sudden death.

Sudan: FRONTLINE/World reporter Amy Costello travels dangerous back roads into Sudan's war-torn Darfur region to learn about the roots of what many consider to be an ongoing genocide. Costello takes a close-up look at the plight of the Darfuris and examines the consequences of continued civil war.

China: FRONTLINE/World reporter Serene Fang visits a remote Chinese province, Xinjiang, to investigate growing tensions between the government and the Muslim people known as the Uighurs. Her clandestine interview with a Uighur man turns into a reporter's nightmare when Chinese authorities arrest Fang and her source, confiscate her videotape, interrogate her for 24 hours, and take the Uighur man away to an unknown fate. In her story, Fang reveals the name of the man in an effort to bring attention to his plight.
