- L.A. Is Burning: Five Reports from a Divided City
- 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
One year after Los Angeles' three days and nights of beatings, looting and burning, how well do we understand what happened there--and why? This program revisits Los Angeles to explore those questions through the eyes of five people who have thought and written about the city from the perspectives of its different communities, races and classes. Tracing the chronology of events from the moment the Rodney King verdict was announced, through the next 72 hours of rampage and deaths, to present-day L.A., this examination of what happened becomes a larger essay on why Los Angeles is a warning signal.
