PBS' 'Frontline,' 'Nova' begin season with a bang At a glance

October 07, 1997

Quite a lineup on PBS tonight.

First, "Nova" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., MPT, Channels 22 and 67) opens its 24th season by following Dr. Jam Ghajar, a neurosurgeon who uses a controversial method of treating head injuries. In tonight's documentary, the doctor monitors a New York City boy, from arrival in the emergency room to resolution of his case.

Then "Frontline" (9 p.m.-10 p.m.) opens its 16th season premiere as Peter Boyer traces the personal finances of Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton. "Our purpose," he says, "is to tell the story in its Arkansas context. It is the nature of those relationships and that place that we believe led to a train of actions and obfuscations nTC that prosecutors may indeed find criminal."

Finally, "I'm in the Truth Business: William Bradford Huie" (11 p.m.-midnight) profiles the Alabama writer ("The Execution of Private Slovik") who generated controversy by writing about the murder of a black teen-ager for Look magazine and paying the two white defendants, who were acquitted in the slaying, to tell their story.
