Frontline: Iraq After Isis First, in Battle for Iraq, produced in association with The Guardian, Iraqi-born Guardian reporter Ghaith Abdul-Ahad makes a dangerous trip inside Mosul to examine the fight and its toll - surviving an ISIS truck bombing along the way. From traveling with members of Iraq's elite special operations forces, known as the Golden Division, to sitting down with a captured ISIS fighter accused of helping carry out seven suicide attacks, to filming inside a nearby hospital that is struggling to cope with thousands of injured civilians, to meeting residents of a refugee camp where there is a growing fear that life under the Iraqi army could be even worse than under ISIS, Battle for Iraq is a gripping, first-hand look at the fight for Mosul and its implications.

VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
