Each episode of FRONTLINE/World on PBS features two or three short stories told by a diverse group of reporters and video journalists. These first-person stories will take viewers on adventurous journeys to foreign lands from Argentina to Zimbabwe. Taking advantage of easily portable digital cameras, our correspondents roam widely, observe closely, and when necessary, film surreptitiously. By presenting viewers with compelling stories from around the planet, the series aims to not only help fill the void in current international news coverage but also to engage the American public in global stories that resonate in their own lives.

The Grey Mask takes true spy stories from espionage history and brings them to life with enhanced audio and professional actors. Here you will find true stories of criminals and heroes, clandestine missions at midnight, black ops, or perhaps a suave James Bond like spy will peek around the corner. <br> <br> Spy mission are not always crime stories; sometimes the spy is a military hero fighting for his or her country and sometimes the clandestine operation can turn a war in another direction. Indeed, covert spies have altered the balance of power, whether it be nuclear weapons, or today’s Wall Street financial markets.<br> Spies also exist in the world of modern corporate espionage. Here you will find brazen spies, stealing company secrets, or playing a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse between competing conglomerates. <br> <br> All the stories are fascinating because they lay forth every aspect of human nature found in a Shakespearean tragedy. Love, power, greed, honor, and betrayal are all found in the Gray Mask. The podcast looks at the history of espionage, from the days of the ancient Greeks, up to today’s cyber spies hacking into a competitor’s network to find dark web secrets not accessible to the public. <br>
