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

On the eve of the first non-racial elections in South Africa, this program presents an analysis of Nelson Mandela's ascent to power as the first democratically elected leader of South Africa. The final portion of the program will chronicle the political life of Winnie Mandela, who is estranged from her husband, Nelson Mandela, and her remarkable climb back from political ostracism, examining her appeal to young radicalized blacks and the political challenge this poses for Nelson Mandela.
