Ever wondered what a 19th century fort looks like? Look no further, Al Qila’ depicts the historical accounts of Al Ain forts and their legends. The architectural documentary stands apart in its format as its presenter, Emirati photographer Musaab Al Musaabi, uses his camera to bring the forts’ history to life, while their facts – and mysteries – are narrated in verse.
The olden Hajj pilgrims are presented by historian Ali bin Ahmed Al Kindi in the ‘Al Mawared’ documentary. The programme traces the journey taken by these men from Al Ain to the UAE borders, a journey through the desert full of dangers and challenges. In the face of hardship, the pilgrims found strength in their faith, becoming stronger and even more resilient.
