This extraordinary hour-long radio documentary tracks down the perpetrators and the victims of ethnic cleansing in May 1999 in western Kosovo. The correspondents found Serbian soldiers who gave detailed descriptions of their actions and their orders, tracing the chain of command back to the Milosevic regime. The soldiers speak frankly about their motivations -- patriotism, and opportunity to steal and a hatred for Albanian Kosovars. The victims tell of their fear, their grief and anger. Overlaying the first-person accounts are analysis history and explanations of the International War Crimes Tribunal This program reaffirms the effectiveness of radio in presenting complicated issues in a compelling way.

The Gold Baton was accepted by the producers, Stephen Smith and Michael Montgomery.
