Anyone catch it last night? I thought it was class; always thought Kate Humble a bit of a lightweight but this was excellent stuff.
Camel jumping anyone?
Looked good, the Saudi bit at the end was ..............interesting.
Having worked there, I feel she is going to get "spun", its not a nice place, but perhaps this type of programme and the exposure to moderate views in Kingdom will slowly change that can be a brutal regime.
My parents spent about 10 years there & my mother was spitting about how much it had been dumbed down / made to look easy that (the lovely) Ms Humble could do as she liked & only got security updates etc at the last minute.
Other than that very enjoyable
That "chat" she had with the Wuttawa guy was clearly a set up.
Having been stopped by these guys I know what really goes down.
I was in Hofuf one time and was hit with a stick for not going to prayers!
Its a backward country, end of, but has so much beauty
I noticed in the credits at the end that it was a Saudi security company that escorted her. Probably quite well sheparded to where she "needed" to go I would have thought.
