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

Three Americans face hostile Russian audiences in a series of debates on the issue of war and peace. Before Mikhail Gorbachev and glasnost, three young Americans journey to the Soviet Union on a whirlwind, two-week, six-city debating tour. They encounter young, articulate Russians whose world view is completely contradictory to their own.
