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.
Outbreak (#3308) Duration: 56:46 STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: none)
This is the inside story of how the Ebola outbreak began and why it wasn't stopped before it was too late.

The Trouble with Chicken (#3218) Duration: 56:46 STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: none)
Frontline investigates the spread of dangerous pathogens in our meat - particularly poultry - and why the food-safety system isn't stopping the threat. Focusing on an outbreak of Salmonella Heidelberg at one of the nation's largest poultry processors, the film shows how contaminants are evading regulators and causing more severe illnesses at a time when Americans are consuming more chicken than ever.
Secrets, Politics and Torture (#3309) Duration: 56:46 STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: none)

Generation Like (#3207H) Duration: 56:46 STEREO TV14
Thanks to social media, today's teens are able to directly interact with their culture - artists, celebrities, movies, brands and even one another - in ways never before possible. But is that real empowerment? Or do marketers still hold the upper hand?
In this film, author and Frontline correspondent Douglas Rushkoff explores how the perennial teen quest for identity and connection has migrated to social media - and exposes the game of cat-and-mouse that corporations are playing with these young consumers. Do kids think they're being used? Do they care? Or does the perceived chance to be the next big star make it all worth it? The film is an examination of the evolving and complicated relationship between teens and the companies that are increasingly working to target them.
