As the United States and Iran are locked in a battle for power and influence across the Middle East -- with the fear of an Iranian nuclear weapon looming in the background -- FRONTLINE gains unprecedented access to Iranian hard-liners shaping government policy, including parliament leader Hamid Reza Hajibabaei, National Security Council member Mohammad Jafari and state newspaper editor Hossein Shariatmadari. In this report that focuses on the tumultuous U.S.-Iran relations since 9/11, FRONTLINE examines how U.S. efforts to install democracy in Iraq have served to strengthen Iran's position as an emerging power in the Middle East--Publisher website: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/showdown/etc/synopsis.html

Sergio( Visual )

Charismatic, charming, and complex, Sergio Vieira de Mello was the United Nations' go-to-guy, a man who could descend into the most dangerous places, charm the worst war criminals, and somehow protect the lives of the ordinary people to whom he devoted his life. Yet his virtues could not save him when he was killed by a terrorist bomb in Baghdad in August, 2003
Frontline( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rwanda was supposed to be easy.Ten years ago, when the United Nations sent peacekeepers to this small, Central African nation -- with the full support of the U.S. government -- most of the policy-makers involved believed it would be a straightforward mission that would help restore the U.N.'s battered reputation after failures in Bosnia and Somalia. Few could imagine that, a decade later, Rwanda would be the crisis that still haunts their souls."Ghosts of Rwanda," a special two-hour documentary to mark the 10th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide -- a state-sponsored massacre in which some 800,000 Rwandans were methodically hunted down and murdered by Hutu extremists as the U.S. and international community refused to intervene -- examines the social, political, and diplomatic failures that converged to enable the genocide to occur
The age of AIDS( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the 25th anniversary of the first diagnosed cases of AIDS, FRONTLINE examines one of the worst pandemics the world has ever known in "The Age of AIDS." After a quarter century of political denial and social stigma, of stunning scientific breakthroughs, bitter policy battles and inadequate prevention campaigns, HIV/AIDS continues to spread rapidly throughout much of the world, particularly in developing nations. Part One's two-hour broadcast begins with the medical and scientific mystery that emerged in 1981 when five gay men in Los Angeles were diagnosed with a new disease. It traces the international response in the first years of the epidemic, contrasting moments of inspirational leadership with the tragedy of missed opportunities. The film also reveals the astounding spread of the disease to over 70 million infections in 2006. Part Two explores the chasm that emerged between rich and poor following the development of the miraculous "triple cocktail" HIV treatment in the mid-1990s. While the treatment seemed to signal a new era in which AIDS was no longer a fatal disease, the high price of the drugs meant they were unaffordable to patients in developing nations. The film also examines the next wave of the AIDS epidemic in some of the most populous and strategically important nations in the world, including Russia, India and China, and tracks the same pattern of official denial and political indifference that characterized the epidemic in so many other countries
