Frontline

Syria Undercover

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
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 protesters are making it out, foreign journalists are seldom making it in. In this 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. Also this hour: a look at the dictator who has managed to hold on longer than any amidst the Arab unrest -President Bashar al-Assad.
