“Secret State of North Korea” Airing January 14th

by | January 12th, 2014 | 09:44 am

Rimjin-gang (News from Inside North Korea) has alerted us to a Frontline documentary titled the “Secret State of North Korea” set to air on PBS (and online) Tuesday, January 14th at 10PM EST.

According to the Press Release, “FRONTLINE shines a light on the hidden world of the North Korean people, drawing on undercover footage from inside the country as well as interviews with defectors—including a former top official—who are working to try to chisel away at the regime’s influence.” This does not look to be the most uplifting way to spend a Tuesday night, but hopefully the footage and interviews compiled will add another small peice to our understanding of the Kim Jong Un era.

[Update: You can now stream “Secret State of North Korea” on PBS’s website here.]
