In the midst of a historic pandemic, economic hardship, and a reckoning with racism, this November, Americans will decide who will lead the nation for the next four years: President Donald Trump or former Vice President Joe Biden. Before the votes are cast, as it has for every election since 1988, PBS Frontline will present its critically acclaimed election year special, offering interwoven investigative biographies of both major-party candidates. Through revealing interviews with those who know Trump and Biden best, this film will offer a deeply reported narrative arc of both candidates' lives. Original title: Frontline: The Choice 2020: Trump vs Biden.
The White Island Disaster It's a terrible truth to have to acknowledge. The White Island volcano in New Zealand is not only spectacular but spectacularly dangerous. One awful afternoon last December, it erupted, seemingly without warning. Forty-seven tourists and guides, who up until the catastrophic explosion had only been thinking of adventure, were stranded on the island. All suffered injuries, and 21 died. Now, for the first time, Australian survivors talk about that tragic day and its devastating aftermath. They tell Sarah Abo it is a miracle that more people weren't killed. But they also express their anger and ask questions about why they were allowed to visit such a perilous location in the first place, and why efforts to rescue them were flawed. The Labradorables Everyone agrees coronavirus COVID-19 has dominated our lives this year, and not in a good way. So on 60 Minutes comes a moment of long overdue respite where smiles are guaranteed to replace snarls. It's thanks to two adorable Labradors, Olive and Mabel, and their best friend, Andrew Cotter. He's a famous Scottish sports commentator who was forced off air when the pandemic hit and shut down major events like Wimbledon and the Tokyo Olympics. However, instead of simply accepting unemployment, Andrew took his microphone home and made Olive and Mabel his sport. He saw magic in the mundane lives of his mutts - and turned them into worldwide internet sensations.
