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

Over twenty-five years ago, scores of Canadian women gave birth to badly malformed children because of a prescription drug called thalidomide. Judy Woodruff profiles the heroic struggle of three thalidomide children who overcame their handicaps despite government neglect and inadequate rehabilitative solutions.
