About the Series

Frontline World Rough CutsFRONTLINE/World Rough Cuts


Launched in June 2005, the "Rough Cut" online video series expanded FRONTLINE /World's opportunity to help lead the trend toward integrating broadcast and online video content to reach a broader audience worldwide.

We use the term "Rough Cut" to encompass a variety of reports, including some works in progress, some from veteran producers, and to allow for experiments in format and style.

The series will conitnue to be a primary outlet for emerging documentary talent and a testing ground for future broadcast stories.
