Ebola Outbreak (Episode #3217H)

KQED 9: Tue, Sep 9, 2014 -- 10:00 PM

From the epicenter of the Ebola outbreak, Frontline follows health officials tracking the deadly disease and trying to stop its rampant spread. With special access to teams fighting Ebola in Sierra Leone, the film shows how the outbreak is endangering health- care workers, overwhelming hospitals and getting worse.
Also this hour, Frontline investigates accounts that members of the Nigerian military have been committing atrocities in the fight against Boko Haram - the Islamist militants who kidnapped nearly 300 schoolgirls in April. Amid worldwide pressure to find the girls, Frontline uncovers shocking videos showing arrests, torture and summary executions of alleged Boko Haram suspects.

Secret State of North Korea (Episode #3206)

KQED 9: Tue, Sep 2, 2014 -- 10:00 PM

Just two years in the job and armed with nuclear weapons, North Korea's Kim Jong-Un is the world's youngest dictator, ruling one of the world's most isolated countries. Like his father and grandfather, he wants to maintain tight control over what North Koreans see of the world - and what the world sees of North Korea. But with unique access, Frontline goes inside the secret state to explore life under its new ruler, and investigate the enigmatic "Morning Star King" as he tries to hold onto power. Using new footage smuggled from inside and never-before-told stories from recent defectors living in South Korea, the film offers a rare glimpse of how some North Koreans are defying authority in a country where just being caught with illegal DVDs could mean immediate imprisonment.
