Olly Lambert of our partner program Frontline decided to spend an extended period reporting from both sides of Syria's war.

For five weeks last fall, Lambert criss-crossed the Orontes river which has now become a dividing line in the civil war.

He talks with anchor Marco Werman about how the once-friendly neighbors have turned into bitter enemies.

Lambert's film for Frontline, "Syria Behind the Lines," airs Tuesday, April 9, at 10 pm on PBS.
