Synopsis by Scott Albright

CNN examines the volatile landscape of early-'90s Europe, talking to its people about the turbulent changes taking place politically, economically, and socially. The program follows a CNN Special Reports team as it takes an in-depth look at how Europe and its people began adjusting to capitalism in Moscow; unemployment, crime, and discrimination in a unified Germany; religion in Poland; free enterprise in Hungary; environmental demands in Czechoslovakia; a pan-European media; and the threatening impact of a European common market and increased competition on the British economy. CNN: Europe on the Brink features candid interviews with authorities, activists, and citizens young and old.
