Airing the future.

Television history was made in the Middle East during the summer when a documentary exploring solutions to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict was aired in Hebrew and Arabic on Israeli and Palestinian stations. It also was broadcast to the Arabic-speaking world on the Abu Dhabi satellite channel. The Shape of the Future, a four-part series developed by the conflict resolution group Search for Common Ground, featured rabbis, Palestinian religious leaders, and political analysts from both sides. "As a longtime supporter of Search for Common Ground's work, I am delighted that Abu Dhabi TV is airing this series," James Zogby, president of the Arab American Institute, told Sojourners. "This is not surprising, however, since ADTV has consistently demonstrated that it is committed to presenting forward-thinking programs to its Arab viewers." The series focused on the future, not the past. It does not include scenes of violence or historical footage, said producers.
