Reveal features two-time Oscar winner Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoys short documentary Freedom Fighters, which profiles three remarkable women battling for equal rights in one of the worlds most dangerous countries for women. In addition, the episode delves into the potential dangers women face when they donate eggs to fertility clinics and the story of two women who gave up everything to help those at risk of deportation.
The Center for Investigative Reporting (CIR) brings its signature investigative journalism to public television this fall with Reveal, a four-part series presented by Oregon Public Broadcasting. 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 State of Surveillance," a look at emerging technologies that could revolutionize police tactics and government surveillance, to "Her War," which takes us to a forgotten war zone-Skid Row in Los Angeles where an increasing number of female vets live on the streets. Hidden stories, uncovered; that's what this series is all about.
