Modern Marvels: Frontline Reporting

In March 2003, embedded civilian correspondents rolled along with U.S. military convoys during the invasion of Iraq. Equipped with a host of advanced transmitting devices, reporters dispatched the news of war as it happened.

Though Frontline reports are nearly as old as war itself, getting the word out to the world was not always as easy - or immediate - as it is today. In this incisive program, find out how frontline reporting has changed over the years: from the fourth-century battlefield reports of the Peloponnesian War to the heavily censored coverage of WWI to the controversial policy of free-reign reporting during Vietnam. Learn how the advent of new technology, such as the printing press, television, and lightweight satellite uplinks, has challenged government censorship policies over the years and changed wartime politics.

Featuring interviews with renowned frontline reporters, such as Walter Cronkite and Bernard Shaw, Frontline Reporting takes an in-depth look at this dangerous profession and the brave men and women who risk their lives bearing witness to war.
