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

This program investigates the behind-the-scenes money givers who raise and donate record-breaking sums to finance the presidential campaigns and the access and influence they gain with the candidates. Beginning with the "President's Dinner" which raised nine million dollars in one night, correspondent Robert Krulwich identifies and follows the largest contributors to the Bush and Clinton campaigns and traces the impact money has on American politics.
