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

Mortgage-lending discrimination remains a systemic problem in America's financial institutions. Peter and Dolores Green, African-American professionals, are suing a Chicago-area bank for refusing to finance their purchase of the home they have lived in for 30 years. FRONTLINE, in co-production with the Center for Investigative Reporting, examines how the discriminatory lending patterns of a generation ago still persist, and documents their devastating effects on racially mixed neighborhoods fighting for economic survival.
