Since January 1983, Frontline has served as American public television's flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," the series' stature over 26 years is reaffirmed through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience.

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.
