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

What is Vietnam like now, 10 years after the US pullout? Takes a rare look inside the new Vietnam, ten years after the fall of Saigon and the U.S. pullout. While the Vietnamese celebrate their victory, the countryside remains scarred and war-torn. Examines the legacies of the longest and most unpopular war in American history on the country where it was fought.
