More about the progam:
The National Football League, a multibillion-dollar commercial juggernaut, presides over America’s indisputable national pastime. But the NFL is under assault as thousands of former players, and a host of scientists, claim the league has covered up football-inflicted long-term brain injuries.
In a special two-part investigation Frontline, in association with ESPN’s Outside the Lines, joins prize-winning journalists Steve Fainaru and Mark Fainaru-Wada of ESPN to reveal the hidden story of the NFL and brain injuries, drawn from their forthcoming book, League of Denial (Crown Archetype, October 2013).
What did the NFL know and when? What’s the truth about risks to players? What can be done? The Frontline investigation details how, for years, the league denied and worked to refute scientific evidence that the violent collisions at the heart of the game are linked to early onset dementia, catastrophic brain damage, death, and other devastating consequences.
League of Denial: The NFL’s Concussion Crisis premieres in two parts on Tuesdays, October 8 and 15, 2013, on WGBH 2 and PBS stations nationwide.
