Series Description

Originally developed by FRONTLINE producers in conjunction with public television stations KQED San Francisco and WGBH Boston, FRONTLINE/World launched in 2002 as a national public TV series that turns its lens on the global community, covering countries and cultures rarely seen on American television. FRONTLINE/World completed its final broadcast season in June 2010.

Program Description

IRAQ: REPORTING THE WAR Nick Hughes visits the chaotic streets of Baghdad for FRONTLINE/World to find out how journalists survive in a war in which they have become targets. He travels with men and women whose quest for the story not only requires body armor as a tool of the trade, but also can lead to sudden death.

SUDAN: THE QUICK AND THE TERRIBLE FRONTLINE/World reporter Amy Costello travels dangerous back roads into Sudan's war-torn Darfur region to learn about the roots of what many consider to be an ongoing genocide. Costello takes a close-up look at the plight of the Darfuris and examines the consequences of continued civil war.

CHINA SILENCED FRONTLINE/World reporter Serene Fang visits a remote Chinese province, Xinjiang, to investigate growing tensions between the government and the Muslim people known as the Uighurs. Her clandestine interview with a Uighur man turns into a reporter's nightmare when Chinese authorities arrest Fang and her source, confiscate her videotape, interrogate her for 24 hours, and take the Uighur man away to an unknown fate. In her story, Fang reveals the name of the man in an effort to bring attention to his plight.
