VIDEO: TV, Nashwa on The BBC's Doha Debates Show

The Qatar Foundation hosts and funds a unique TV program: The Doha Debates. Each month experts from the Arab world, and around the globe, debate big picture issues. Past debate topics include: Hezbollah's right to fight on behalf of Lebanon and does the Arab media have anything to learn from journalism in the West.
We visited the broadcast and appeared on the video of the program. A great big thanks to Ali, Tim and the gang for making us feel welcome and answering all our questions.
