OVERVIEW

Canada: The Cell Next Door
The hidden face of suburban jihad
In a story close to home, FRONTLINE/World and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation go inside a homegrown terrorist cell accused of planning mass destruction and murder on North American soil. The Cell Next Door retraces events leading up to last year's arrests in Toronto of 18, mostly young, Muslim men - who are now standing trial -- and talks to the radical Muslim informant within their ranks who helped foil the attacks. read more

Russia: Moscow's Sex and the City
The new reality for Russian Women
Moscow's version of Sex and the City explores what it means to be a young, single woman in modern-day Russia. Traveling to Moscow, filmmaker and FRONTLINE/World reporter Victoria Gamburg introduces us to the fictional characters and the stars of Russia's popular TV series, Balzac Age, and reveals how the show compares with the real-life experiences of single women making a life for themselves in Moscow. read more

South Africa: The Play Pump
Turning water into child's play

Since then, much has happened to Field and his efforts to bring fresh drinking water to millions of Africans. Last autumn, PlayPumps International received a huge financial boost, when First Lady Laura Bush and former president Bill Clinton announced $16.4 million in grants to expand his work. Watch this update to the original story. read more
