PBS Presents A 'Hidden History' Of The SUV

The website for the PBS Frontline show titled "Rollover: The Hidden History of the SUV" presents an overview and excerpts from interviews.

"In the 10-year period during which Ford SUVs outfitted with Firestone tires caused some 300 deaths in rollover accidents, more than 12,000 people died in SUV rollovers unrelated to tire failure. What did automakers and the federal government know about the risks posed by SUVs -- and what were they doing to protect consumers? Here's an overview of the SUV's hidden history, along with excerpts from FRONTLINE's interviews with former regulators and other auto-safety experts."
