Memory of the Camps (#318) Duration: 59:00 STEREO TVM (Secondary audio: none)

A landmark historical film discovered by Frontline in a museum vault decades ago has been called "Hitchcock's lost Holocaust film." First broadcast by the series in 1985, the documentary shows the first horrifying footage shot as Allied troops entered the Nazi death camps. Drawing on initial editing done by famed director Alfred Hitchcock before the film was shelved 70 years ago, Frontline reconstituted the forgotten reels and script and showed them in public for the first time 30 years ago.

The Trouble with Chicken (#3218) Duration: 56:46 STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: none)

Frontline investigates the spread of dangerous pathogens in our meat - particularly poultry - and why the food-safety system isn't stopping the threat. Focusing on an outbreak of Salmonella Heidelberg at one of the nation's largest poultry processors, the film shows how contaminants are evading regulators and causing more severe illnesses at a time when Americans are consuming more chicken than ever.

Generation Like (#3207H) Duration: 56:46 STEREO TV14

Thanks to social media, today's teens are able to directly interact with their culture - artists, celebrities, movies, brands and even one another - in ways never before possible. But is that real empowerment? Or do marketers still hold the upper hand?
In this film, author and Frontline correspondent Douglas Rushkoff explores how the perennial teen quest for identity and connection has migrated to social media - and exposes the game of cat-and-mouse that corporations are playing with these young consumers. Do kids think they're being used? Do they care? Or does the perceived chance to be the next big star make it all worth it? The film is an examination of the evolving and complicated relationship between teens and the companies that are increasingly working to target them.
