Episode Detail: Heart of Darkness - Nightline
Ted Koppel spends time in Congo, exploring the violence that has wracked the country since 1998. Part 1 is a series overview that looks at the antagonists and why they're fighting. It also examines “how the American media missed the story,” says executive producer Tom Bettag. And it charts the environmental havoc the war has caused: one national park visited has lost half its gorillas and all its elephants.
