AV Benefits:

Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.

Professional Reviews:

"What's best -- and most chilling -- about this program is really just how clear-eyed it is. Navai's almost preposterously gutsy reporting takes viewers right to the edge of the danger zone; one knock at the door, and you realize that her camera would stop rolling..." - New York Newsday

"They have not told us what will happen next week or month; but they have painted the most intimate picture of the Syrian crisis so far and have answered the question of what kind of man rules that poor, beautiful country today. How many TV programs do that?" - America Magazine

Description

  • Syria Undercover - As the death toll in Syria nears 3,000, the revolution rages on well after the fall of dictators in Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya. While grainy cell phone videos of violent attacks on protester are making it out, foreign journalists are seldom making it in. In this special newsmagazine report, FRONTLINE offers a rare look from inside, as we travel with undercover reporter Ramita Navai into some of the most dangerous parts of Syria to meet members of the opposition movement forced into hiding. As the town of Madaya is besieged by the army, the security forces, and the militia, Navai experiences first-hand life as a fugitive when she is trapped in a safe house with three opposition coordinators on the government's most wanted list.

    The Regime - New York Times foreign correspondent Anthony Shadid and other experts tell the story of President Bashar al-Assad and how the Syrian dictator has managed to hold onto power in the months since the Arab Spring of 2011.

    This program contains mature content, including graphic imagery that may not be appropriate for more sensitive viewers. Viewer discretion is advised.
