Coming in January on FRONTLINE

December 23, 2014
by Patrice Taddonio Digital Writer & Audience Development Strategist

This January, FRONTLINE turns its lens on two major political stories — one domestic, and one international.

First, we’ll go inside America’s gun debate to investigate the power and politics of the NRA. Then, with Russia’s faltering economy making headlines, we’ll examine the rise of the country’s beleaguered president, Vladimir Putin.

We’ll also bring you a rebroadcast of our acclaimed look at the NFL’s concussion crisis.

Here’s a closer look at our January lineup:

Jan. 6 | Gunned Down: The Power of the NRA

Veteran FRONTLINE filmmaker Michael Kirk investigates the NRA, its political evolution and influence, and how it has consistently succeeded in defeating new gun control legislation.

Jan. 13 | Putin’s Way

FRONTLINE investigates the accusations of criminality and corruption that have surrounded Vladimir Putin’s reign in Russia in Putin’s Way, a FRONTLINE production with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

Jan. 20 | League of Denial

What did the NFL know about the connection between football and brain injuries, and when did it know it? As the NFL season draws to a close, revisit our 2013 investigation of the NFL’s concussion crisis.
