Oh Morpium! How could you forget ITME?

Posted Image Would you belive it was a late night for me? Truth be told, I have never seen a full episode of ITME - Mainly because of the silly time it gets shown here. I do hope to catch a full episode sometime soon though.

I can believe that.

HOSTED BY HALA GORANI FROM EGYPT

NUBIANS IN MODERN EGYPT - HALA GORANI
They once ruled Egypt and now they're barely clinging to relevance. In the space of a single generation, the Nubians, one of the oldest and richest cultures in history, have been forced into an exile of sorts in their own country. A series of floods from the construction of dams displaced this ancient community from the banks of the Nile, sometimes deep into the arid desert. Hala Gorani visits their villages and speaks to Nubians who remember their people's golden age, as well as the younger generation whose main source of income comes from turning daily Nubian life and culture into tourist attractions.

MARRIED TO A BEDOUIN - SCHAMS ELWAZER
SAUDI DESERT ECOLOGY - NIC ROBERTSON

Schams doing a segment should make Spitfire happy.
(Yes, April 7).

Oh yeah Houston I like that Schams Elwazer is gonna have some ITME input. We had that report from Turkey but the last time I saw Schams was when she was holding a camera on Hala's Oyster hunt. :wink:

Excellent Houston

I don't like that I saw 2 of the 3 segments on YW but I like very much that we saw a short segment of the ITME gals together. Hala Basha being first among equals.

Yep, the behind-the-scenes photos are really nice! Hope one day they will air a special behind-the-scenes episode where we can enjoy all the bloopers and off-camera moments.

Thankfully the Queen of Watchability is still gonna host the forthcoming ITME from the rather exotic location of Marrakesh. :P :P

#42:

Hosted by Hala Gorani from Morocco

MARRAKESH REVIVAL

With its snake charmers and storytellers, Marrakesh has long been an offbeat destination for travellers. Now hotels, holiday homes, and golf courses are transforming the ancient city into a mass tourist destination. Some residents fear the development may be too much, too fast. Hala Gorani takes us to the streets of Marrakesh's old Medina, where thousands of old-style Moroccan homes, or "riads," have been converted into hotels for tourists.

CITY IN THE DESERT

A bold vision - sprung out of the Saudi desert. A skyscraper-studded financial center... a beach resort... an industrial district... an education zone, and a residential area for almost two million people. And that's not even a complete list of all the offerings. This ambitious project - King Abdullah City - will rise out of Saudi Arabia's desert along the Red Sea coast north of Jeddah. With investments exceeding 26-billion dollars, it's the largest private development in the Kingdom's history. The Saudis envision the city as an economic epicenter for its booming youth population. Senior International Correspondent Nic Robertson has this up-close look at the city's progress.

WEST BANK STORY

If you watched the Academy Awards this year, you may have noticed that the Academy honored a short film about the Middle East. What you may not know is that the film was very controversial -- a musical comedy about tensions between Israelis and Palestinians. The student film was made by an American who was warned that taking a humorous look at a serious conflict might ruin his career in Hollywood. Peter Viles has a look at the Oscar-winning best live action short,"West Bank Story," and the idealistic American who made it.

I wish CNN would stop running ITME reports before the show goes out. Do it after not before. :roll:

All in all an excellent edition :D definitely on the upper half of the ITME ladder of watchability. :wink:

It seems if I remember didn't Hala do a very similar story on D360? I'll have to look later, but I'm pretty sure - maybe it was personal residences.
