The FRONTLINE Interviews:

America’s Great Divide

Our Sources. On the Record. At Your Fingertips.

To produce America’s Great Divide, FRONTLINE drew on scores of interviews conducted by our filmmakers over the last decade, including two dozen new interviews conducted during the last year with Obama and Trump administration officials, journalists, authors and scholars. This unparalleled on-the-record archive includes exclusive eyewitness accounts, fresh insights and deep analysis of a tumultuous period in American history. Now you can explore these full interviews. Use FRONTLINE's interactive features to find quotes from the film in their original context, to share highlights from the interviews and to discover content not included in the final cut of the film. (Note: Several of the interviews in this collection were previously published on the FRONTLINE website and will open in a new tab. To navigate back to this collection, simply close the new tab.)
