SCHEHERAZADE: TELL ME A STORY (Not Rated)
Karim and Hebba are a young married and loving couple. Both have
great careers. Karim is just about to be appointed as editor-in-chief of
the greatest governmental newspaper. Hebba is the hostess of much
appreciated TV programs about female victims, e.g., daughters who are
buried alive because of improper behavior, people drowning when
attempting illegal immigration to Europe. Karim is told that he will
only be appointed if his wife avoids political topics. He does persuade
her to make programs on ordinary people instead. But her "non-political"
programs will become even more repugnant to the authorities.
Panelist: Dr. Maysa Hayward, dean of E-Learning, Ocean County College
