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 takes a behind-the-scenes look at the 1990 Stanford University's Women's Basketball team, its coach, and the season they set out to win the biggest dream in college sports--a national championship. Smith's six month record of the team's "miracle season" captures their spirit and determination, details coach Tara Vanderveer's strategy and tenaciousness and chronicles the grueling twists and turns on the road to the title. The program poses important questions about the obstacles facing women's athletics which continue to fight for equal opportunities, funding and media coverage.
