FRONTLINE continues its new monthly magazine program with the lead story Money and March madness plus two others.
Money and March Madness - Take an inside look at the multi-billion dollar business of the NCAA and its brand of amateur college sports. In this investigation, correspondent Lowell Bergman gains access to Sonny Vaccaro, a former marketing executive at Nike, Adidas, and Reebok who helped bring about the rapid commercialization of college basketball. Vaccaro's success made coaches, administrators, and companies rich. But the players remain at the mercy of the NCAA, which, despite a new $10.8 billion contract for its basketball tournament, has continued to insist that the athletes don't get paid. Now, Vaccaro has left the business world and he's spearheading a class-action lawsuit that aims to ensure that players get a piece of the action.
Who's Afraid of Ai Weiwei? - FRONTLINE presents this intimate portrait of a man who's sometimes called China's Andy Warhol - Ai Weiwei. He's a global art star who's now using his international renown, along with a video camera and a growing underground Twitter following, to push the boundaries of freedom in today's China.
The Private Life of Bradley Manning - Later in the hour, as the WikiLeaks fall-out continues, FRONTLINE presents an exclusive interview with Brian Manning, Private Bradley Manning's father, who speaks out for the first time about his son's upbringing and troubled youth, Manning's time in the Army, and why he still believes his son did not hand over the largest cache ever of classified documents to the whistle-blowing site.
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.
