Alternate title:North Korea, secret Nation
Summary:This undercover report documents the stark poverty and extreme repression in North Korea that exist alongside spectacular cultural events and age-old customs unfettered by political ideology. Posing as a tourist, broadcast journalist Janet Choi risked arrest to get an inside look at one of the planet's most secretive--and brutally totalitarian--countries while under surveillance by a police "tour guide".
