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

Examines the successful strategies Japan is using to win American markets and the reasons US companies seem unable to compete. Critics believe the objective of Japanese businesses, aided by a government which actively participates in long-term industrial and economic planning, is to attack and drive the US competition out of business. This report looks at the basic differences between Japanese and US market capitalism through three industries -- automobile, video games and computers. Robert Krulwich hosts and leads 30-minute discussion and debate.
