Program Number


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

With headlines focused on the United Nations' search and destroy missions inside Iraq, this program investigates how Iran is quietly rebuilding its national arsenal of weapons. The program uncovers a far flung secret procurement network including Iranian efforts to acquire biological, chemical and most worrisome of all, nuclear weapons.
