- Investigating the October Surprise
- 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 is FRONTLINE's second look at allegations that the Reagan-Bush presidential campaign interfered with President Carter's negotiations to free American hostages in Iran prior to election day 1980. FRONTLINE's first broadcast about these allegations was "The Election Held Hostage." In this second report, reporter Robert Parry travels to the Middle East unearthing further details concerning claims that Republicans met with Iranians. The central question of this report is whether or not William Casey, Reagan's campaign director, could have met with Iranians in Paris and Madrid in the summer of 1980.
