Reveal takes a look at the ways the U.S. has reacted to terrorism. In "The Terrorist Hunter," director Ann Shin profiles a controversial spy, lauded by some for fighting terrorism and derided by others who claim she finds terror plots where none exist. The episode also explores the challenges that survivors of mass shootings face and uncovers the secret history of American surveillance.
The Center for Investigative Reporting (CIR) brings its signature investigative journalism back to public television this spring with another installment of Reveal, a four-part series presented by KQED. Reveal is a first-of-its-kind television show that brings viewers deep into investigations and captures the drama and high stakes of the reporting process. The magazine-format program leads with a documentary story followed by shorter pieces and a "true cartoon" animation, and each hour-long episode explores crucial, and often underreported issues: from Terrorist Hunting to finding the families of Jane and John Doe's. Hidden stories, uncovered; that's what this series is all about.
