Doc Zone Afghanistan: Between Hope and Fear

For Canada the stakes are unprecedented. More than a billion dollars in aid has been promised to Afghanistan since the fall of the Taliban regime. And with close to 100 Canadian soldiers killed, the military mission in the war-torn country has exacted a considerable human toll. As the mammoth task of rebuilding Afghanistan continues, it's time to address a contentious question: is all of this effort making a difference to the lives of Afghans? Afghanistan: Between Hope and Fear takes viewers into the heart of a country that has been the subject of such intense debate and asks whether or not the lives of ordinary citizens are improving. In order to gain unique access to Afghans living in remote and particularly dangerous areas, the CBC engaged local journalists and camera crews. Through a series of intensely personal stories delving into a range of topics, the program examines the big issues: is the country descending into further instability? Or is real progress being made?
