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

As the Iran-contra scandal was still unfolding, correspondent William Greider revealed how the U.S. began supporting the contras in Nicaragua and why our involvement there continues. The program is a meticulous reconstruction of U.S. policy toward Nicaragua, and an investigation into how U.S. foreign policy is made.
