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 takes on the death penalty debate with a profile of Sister Helen Prejean. A longtime spiritual advisor to inmates on death row, her life and work inspired the highly acclaimed motion picture "Dead Man Walking."
