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

Hedrick Smith revisits the former Soviet Union to investigate how the institutions and people he filmed for the 1990 series "Inside Gorbachev's USSR" are dealing with change. Arriving on the eve of the January 2, 1992 lifting of price controls, which Boris Yeltsin's advisors call the first serious step toward a market economy, Smith finds a nation enjoying new freedoms of speech and conscience but on the brink of economic disaster.
