Must have been for dramatic appeal. The doc was light, critically, where it applied to the story put forward by the witnesses, particularly the doctor.

It was also quite short for a Frontline doc, so certainly the subject could have been explored in greater detail.

I think the Frontline piece "The Madoff Affair" was better, but compared to this year, last year was a relatively weak year overall for the Frontline series.
