Econintersect: The significance of ISIS when the organization was covered by PBS Frontline in February 2014 was probably lost on many viewers. This week the documentary is the Frontline broadcast on 11 February 2014. The first half (24 minutes) of the program was an on-the-ground report about ISIS, the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (aka as ISIL, the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant). Warning: There are scenes of extreme violence.
