    PBS NewsHour [#11047H] UKRAINE - NATO - Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko announced this morning that a cease-fire agreement had been reached with Russian president Vladimir Putin. Moscow denied this, saying Russia is not party to the conflict in Ukraine. A revised statement from Kiev spoke only of steps that could lead to a cease-fire, but pro-Russian separatists rejected this as well. Speaking on a visit to Mongolia, Putin outlined his own proposal to end the conflict. All this comes as NATO leaders prepare to meet at a summit in Wales where the crisis in Ukraine is likely to be one of the items at the top of the agenda. Chief foreign affairs correspondent Margaret Warner shares her analysis.

    Frontline [#3206H] Secret State of North Korea 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.

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. duration 56:46   STEREO TVRE
