Hidden Burma (CNN)
CNN's Special Investigations Unit sends a secret team posing as tourists to investigate. Chief international correspondent Christiane Amanpour's documentary "Buddha's Warriors" goes undercover to explore the Burmese situation.
Citizens and monastics are interviewed. The military junta's totalitarian control of the state and its ongoing detainment (since 1988) of Burma's democratically-elected opposition leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, are probed.
