New Frontline: House of Saud
Tuesday at 9pm EST, check local listings.
In "House of Saud," FRONTLINE explores how the Al Saud family maintains its hold on power in the face of growing tensions between Islam and modernity. Through interviews with members of the royal family, government officials, and other experts from Saudi Arabia and the U.S., the two-hour documentary also traces America's relations with the Saudi royal family from their first alliance in the 1930s through September 11 and beyond to the present day.
Tune in and watch. I'll have some thoughts posted on Wednesday and, as always, your comments will be welcome.
