UAE: Documentary on Dubai's Ancient Past Comes Out


(MENAFNEditorial) iCrowdNewswire - Mar 5, 2018

DUBAI,Feb 28 (WAM) - The Government of Dubai Media Office (GDMO) yesterday launched Dubai BC, a 10-part documentary series that explores Dubai's ancient past. Produced in collaboration with Saudi researcher Loay Al Shareef, Dubai BC was filmed in five ancient archaeological sites in Sarouq Al Hadid, Hatta, Al Qusais, Al Sufouh and Al Eshoush in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Dubai BC offers insights into civilisations that flourished in the Arabian Peninsula in the period BC, starting from the 3rd millennium BC. Apart from the unique social, economic and cultural characteristics of these civilisations, the documentary takes a deeper look at the significant migrations that shaped the region's ancient history.

Director of Media Services at Government of Dubai Media Office Salem Belyouha said that Dubai BC aims to educate new generations about the history and heritage of Dubai, which have played an important role in shaping its present. Dubai's current development, he said, is built on strong historic roots.

"History is the starting point for every nation's effort to shape its future. Our understanding of our past greatly enriches our vision for the future as well as our current interactions with other cultures," he added. (WAM) (END/2018)
