FRONTLINE: United States of Secrets
FRONTLINE goes behind the headlines to reveal the dramatic inside story of how the U.S. government came to monitor and collect the communications of millions of people around the world - including ordinary Americans - and the lengths they went to as they tried to hide this massive surveillance program from the public.
Part One goes inside Washington and the NSA, piecing together the secret history of the unprecedented surveillance program that began in the wake of September 11 and continues today - even after the revelations of its existence by Edward Snowden.
Part Two explores the secret relationship between Silicon Valley and the NSA, and investigates how the government and tech companies have worked together to gather and warehouse your data.
From the investigative team behind FRONTLINE's award-winning Money, Power & Wall Street, United States of Secrets is the definitive history of domestic surveillance in a post-9/11 world. Part political thriller and part spy novel, the series is gripping viewing for those who want to understand the context of the Snowden affair - and what it means for all Americans.
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.
