Description

In the Middle East, programs that broadcast on international satellite have more freedom to pursue a broader range of topics than those broadcast on terrestrial state television. This greatly benefits some stations which have found that addressing thought-provoking issues earns their programs higher ratings. In this video segment from the Wide Angle film "Dishing Democracy," learn about how people who work behind the scenes on the MBC hit Kalam Nawaem achieve the balance between social mores and the popular appeal of provocative content. The segment also includes a discussion of the channel’s plans to extend Kalam Nawaem to new platforms.
