Introducing the "Rough Cut" Series
BY Stephen Talbot
Karzan Sherabayani, the subject of our first "Rough Cut" in the series, returns to Kirkuk to vote in historic elections.
This week, FRONTLINE/World launches "Rough Cut," a new weekly series of Web-exclusive videos from around the world.
One of our biggest challenges at FRONTLINE/World has been deciding which stories we will broadcast, among the hundreds of videos and proposals we receive each year.
So far, in 16 episodes, we have aired 41 stories from more than 30 countries. But we have turned down countless documentaries by talented reporters and producers simply because we don't have the air time to broadcast them.
