Disasters are big business. Frontline and NPR collaborated on an investigation into the Business of Disaster to find who profits when disaster strikes. The film focuses on Superstorm Sandy’s aftermath: the thousands of people still without homes, the agencies that were supposed to help, and the companies that made millions.

From foreign affairs to family matters, social issues to criminal justice, politics to the press, the WGBH-produced, award-winning Frontline goes beyond the superficial sound bite of the television newsmagazine to offer in-depth, intelligent, and thought-provoking stories and investigative reports. 

Watch it tonight at 10pm on WGBH 2. More airings
