Product Description:

For those in Iraq, television had been dominated by propaganda and the face of Saddam Hussein for over two decades. Television was a vehicle to inform and educate the population as determined by the government. But since his fall, television has dramatically changed in the country. What were once a series of government sponsored broadcasts have given way to privately funded entertainment programming. This documentary takes a look at the seismic changes in Iraqi TV and what is fueling those changes. Shows like “Iraqi Pop Idol” have become popular along with home improvement shows with tips on how to repair bombed out houses. A population that is kept inside their homes at night by curfews and fear are flocking to entertainment channels and their own brand of soap operas and reality TV. Those who feel bad television is strictly an American phenomenon will find this an interesting DVD that is entertaining in its own right.
