Please note: this program contains graphic imagery and descriptions of police abuse. Viewer discretion is advised. In "Revolution in Cairo," FRONTLINE goes inside the youth movement that ignited the uprising. We follow the "April 6th" group, which two years ago began making a bold use of the Internet for their underground resistance -- tactics that led to jail and torture for many of their leaders. Now, starting with the "Day of Rage," we witness those same leaders plot strategy and head into "Liberation Square" to try to bring down President Mubarak. Also in this hour, veteran Middle East correspondent Charles Sennott of GlobalPost lands in Cairo for FRONTLINE to take a hard look at Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood -- the most well-organized and powerful of the country's opposition groups -- as a new fight for power in Egypt begins to takes shape. Watch on air and online beginning Tuesday, February 22 at 9 pm ET on PBS. Due to rights restrictions, online steaming of this film will be limited to the United States.
