Summary Foreign Correspondent has covered extraordinary and dramatic global change since it launched back in 1992 and yet, as the program's 20th anniversary program shows, while many parts of the world have moved at warp speed, others remain mired in the past.To explore the way our world has spun during these years, Foreign Correspondent alumni Tony Jones and Jennifer Byrne have returned to the program for special assignments.Jennifer heads to New York, the scene of her seminal reporting in 1999 and 2001 on the wild promise of the internet. In less than two years the spectacular boom was dot.gone - but not for long.In 1992 Tony Jones was the ABC's European correspondent and the story dominating his working life was unfolding in Yugoslavia. Chilling terms like 'ethnic cleansing' entered the lexicon as centuries-old rivalries and hatreds brought bloodshed, waves of refugees and comparisons to the Holocaust.Tony witnessed some appalling scenes during his assignments for Foreign Correspondent in the 1990s but re-visiting Bosnia earlier this year he sought out some of the people whose lives had been scarred by the war but who epitomised the stoicism of the human spirit.Tony and Jennifer's journeys weave between the recollections of other program stalwarts like George Negus, Jonathan Holmes, Mark Corcoran, Eric Campbell, Dominique Schwartz, Peter George, Trevor Bormann and Jane Hutcheon.PRODUCTION DETAILS:Steve Taylor, Executive Producer, Foreign Correspondent
