The PBS television news program, Frontline, has been applauded over the years for its fine coverage of important national and international topics that demand intensive research and a commitment to investigative journalism. This relatively recent addition to the program, Frontline: World aims "to not only help fill the void in current international news coverage but also to engage the American public in global stories that resonate in their own lives." Each episode of Frontline: World contains two or three short stories, told by an eclectic group of video journalists and reporters who are working in various countries, such as Sierra Leone, Bhutan, and Bolivia. On the site, visitors can watch the programs in their entirety, browsing through a list of programs organized by location, date, place or theme. Visitors can also take part in lively online discussion forums, which are provided as a place for viewers to debate and discuss some of the complex problems and issues raised by these short features. The site also includes an area for educators that features helpful educational materials, and a place where they may sign up to receive email updates about new materials and upcoming programs in the series.
