NEWS & PUBLIC AFFAIRS

A production of  

Television's premier public affairs series, WGBH's Frontline is the recognized leader in producing compelling and engaging programs that explore the issues of our times. From foreign affairs to family matters, social issues to criminal justice, politics to the press, Frontline goes beyond the superficial sound bite of the television newsmagazine to offer in-depth, intelligent, and thought-provoking stories and investigative reports.

Frontline: "Being Mortal"

Frontline follows renowned New Yorker writer and Boston surgeon Atul Gawande as he explores the relationships doctors have with patients who are nearing the end of life. In conjunction with Gawande’s bestseller Being Mortal, this film investigates the practice of caring for the dying and reveals how doctors are not only often uncomfortable talking with their patients about chronic illness and death, but may be remarkably untrained for the task.
