Dominating the field of Olympic boxing for the past quarter century, Cuba's gold medal-winning athletes have propelled their tiny nation onto the world stage and served as an unconventional tool of foreign and domestic policy. Now, for the first time ever, the legendary Havana Boxing Academy - where physical training and revolutionary indoctrination go hand in hand - has opened its doors to a foreign film crew. As Fidel Castro's faltering health throws the future into question, Victory is Your Duty reveals the academy as a microcosm of Cuban society where grade-school boys are groomed to fight for the honor of the revolution. PBS Airdate: Tuesday, July 10th at 9pm (check local listings). For more information visit http://www.pbs.org/wnet/wideangle/
