“The Jonestown Tragedy” is an episode of the National Geographic series, The Final Report. This is a documentary about the death of over 900 men, women, and children who live in a religious compound in the jungles of Guyana, South America called Jonestown.
Jonestown was the name given to the small community called “Peoples Temple Agricultural Project” formed by the California-native cult called Peoples Temple. The deaths of 900 members of the Peoples Temple may be due to cyanide poisoning.
The Peoples Temple leader, Jim Jones, is being investigated for the deaths and his beliefs about brotherhood and social justice is also being questioned.
