|Man in a Desert||
In a world full of Big Brother, Star Academy and similar what I consider "fluff" type of TV programs I'm impressed with Nojoom al-Oloom, or Stars of Science.
It is syndicated on several Arab television networks which increases its exposure and audience base.
The program is the brainchild of Qatar Foundation and encourages young (18-30 years old) Arab inventors to submit their ideas. The grand prize is $300,000 but to my mind the real prize is the valuable contribution this program makes in attempting to awaken the Arab world from its centuries-old stupor. SOS, indeed!
The program's website is here.
