- Money and March Madness: This March, the nation will once again go "mad," as more than 140 million people tune in to watch one of the biggest sporting events on earth -- the NCAA men's basketball tournament. But "March Madness" isn't just a basketball tournament. It's become big business, with television rights alone worth $10.8 billion over 14 years. In Money and March Madness, FRONTLINE correspondent Lowell Bergman takes a hard look at the economics of the annual NCAA tournament -- a cash cow for amateur athletics that generates enormous dollars for everyone except the players themselves, raising basic questions of fairness that are now leading a handful of influential figures to challenge the way the NCAA operates.Who's afraid of Ai Weiwei?: He's China's first global art star who is using his fame to push the boundaries of freedom in that country. But he's walking a fine line ...The private life of Bradley Manning: A profile of the early years of the young soldier now accused of leaking more than half a million classified U.S. government documents.
