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

Land wars break out as millions of farmers migrate to massive ranches in the Brazilian rain forest. Absentee landlords hire gunmen to kill the squatters, and when the peasants take up arms, the result is lawless gun battle.
