Nine feature segments for the "Evening News" reveal powerful human stories behind the news of the fall of Communist governments. The correspondents were Dan Rather, Tom Fenton, Anthony Mason, Betsy Aaron and Peter Van Sant, reporting from Czechoslovakia, Romania, Latvia, Germany, and along the Hungarian border with Austria. Several reports reveal social problems previously unreported in the West, especially on industrial and chemical pollution. The segments show with great sensitivity how policies affect people --women, children and refugees-- and the environment.
