Cry, Ethiopia, Cry

Nov. 27, 1984
60 minutes

In one of the first comprehensive reports broadcast in the U.S., Frontline presents the searing reality of the famine in Ethiopia. In desert camps described as 'the closest thing to hell on earth,' nearly 100 children, old people, and the infirm were dying every day. They were dying while the US and the Soviet Union argued over how to feed them and what to do about Ethiopia.

Producer(s): Nicholas Claxton

Awards: The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Emmy Award Outstanding Background/Analysis of a Single Current Story
