Murder in Ukraine

A year after the Orange Revolution overthrew Ukraine's brutal government, Myroslava Gongadze returned to the country to find out the truth about the death of her husband, crusading journalist Georgy Gongadze. She learns that many Ukranians suspect he was murdered by the regime of former president Leonid Kuchma. In a Frontline World special, "Ukraine -- a Murder in Kyiv," reporter Brian Knappenberger follows Gongadze as she tries to unravel the political intrigue surrounding her husband's killing. The result is a story with the narrative drive of a John le Carre' novel, except it is only all too real. The packaging of Knappenberger's video, print story, photos and links are a great example of how different media can enhance each other on the Web.
