Coming in December on FRONTLINE

December 2, 2014
by Patrice Taddonio Digital Writer & Audience Development Strategist

From the biggest Ponzi scheme in history, to the life and times of Jesus of Nazareth, our December lineup of FRONTLINE classics explores human behavior — both naughty and nice.

Plus, watch this space: We’re working on some exciting digital projects that will land later this month. (Sign up as a FRONTLINE Insider, and we’ll e-mail you the second we launch.)

We’ll be back with new broadcasts in January. In the meantime, here’s a closer look at our December lineup:

Dec. 9 | The Madoff Affair

Go inside the world’s first truly global Ponzi scheme — a deception that lasted longer, reached wider and cut deeper than any other business scandal in history.

Dec. 23 & 30 | From Jesus to Christ: The First Christians

In a pair of two-hour installments that challenge conventional assumptions and draw on historical evidence, explore the epic story of the rise of Christianity. First, on Dec. 23, learn about the life and death of Jesus of Nazareth, how his ministry grew, and how his early followers interpreted his teachings in many different ways. Then, on Dec. 30, go inside the extraordinary events of the second and third centuries, in which Christianity grew from a small Jewish sect to an official religion of the Roman Empire.
