Program Number


Series Description

FRONTLINE is investigative journalism that questions, explains and changes our world. Since 1983, FRONTLINE has served as PBS's flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience.

Program Description

Eight years after one of the most violent prison uprisings in U.S. history, FRONTLINE returns to the penitentiary of New Mexico to probe the continuing struggles between the inmates and the guards, and the wardens and the reformers for control of one of the country's most dangerous prisons.
