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

FRONTLINE investigates the bombing of Pan Am jumbo jet flight 103 on December 21, 1988. Most of the passengers on board were Americans heading home for the holidays. Correspondent David Marash examines the latest information on the bombing and the key questions emerging from official inquiries: Who built the bomb? Who ordered the attack and supported the terrorist group? Could this tragedy have been prevented?
