Frontline's "Egypt in Crisis"

Protesters in Cairo march in support of ousted Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, who won Egypt’s first free and fair elections in June 2012, but was overthrown by the military a year later.

Less than three years after the popular uprising that led to President Hosni Mubarak's ouster, and just one year after Egypt's first free and fair elections, the democratically elected government has been overthrown and the Egyptian military is running the state. Writer/producer Martin Smith looks at what went wrong and what happens next. Frontline’s new documentary “Egypt in Crisis” explores those questions. It premieres September 17, at 10:30 pm, on PBS.
