- Tobacco on Trial
- 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
Life-long smokers who say their health has been ruined by cigarettes are suing tobacco companies under a branch of law called product liability. The theory is that when a company makes a product which hurts people, that company must pay damages. Since many consider smoking a voluntary choice -- not like faulty brakes or dangerous drugs -- should smokers have the right to sue?
