FRONTLINE: The Trial of Ratko Mladic They called him "The Butcher of Bosnia."
In the aftermath of the brutal wars that decimated Yugoslavia in the early 1990s, former Bosnian Serb General Ratko Mladic was accused of genocide and other war crimes - including the massacre of more than 7,000 Muslim men and boys in the town of Srebrenica in July 1995 - considered the worst crime perpetrated on European soil since World War II.
After 16 years on the run, Mladic was apprehended and brought to The Hague to stand trial before the UN's International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, the biggest and only truly international war crimes tribunal since Nuremburg.
The judges' sentence was life in prison. But a guilty verdict was by no means assured during the trial.
In The Trial of Ratko Mladic, FRONTLINE goes inside the historic five-year trial, with unprecedented, behind-the-scenes access to the prosecution and defense teams, as well as to witnesses from both sides who came to give evidence.
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.
