Description

Al Hiwar TV is broadcast in the Arabic language from London. The channel was established in 2006 by a group of Arab and UK-based intellectuals and entrepreneurs. The channel broadcasts information and analysis and aims to encourage academic discussion and dialogue between civilisations and different ethnic groups. Some of the programmes broadcast by Al Hiwar TV include “”””An Encounter in London””””, “”””Rights of the People”””” and “”””A Cause and a Dialogue””””. The channel broadcasts live interviews with specialists and popular personalities in which discussion of global current events is uppermost. Many of the important events and occasions in the Arab world are spotlighted and discussed in a variety of topical broadcasts. The channel gathers together some of the most important Arabic-speaking critical thinkers from the literary, political and economic world to engage in lively debate and argue their causes. Al Hiwar TV has been subjected to censorship and signal jamming throughout the years, its links with the Muslim Brotherhood and possibly Hamas mean it’s a channel that’s continually under suspicion of funding or promoting terrorism. In addition, the channel has been taken off air in Egypt and the United Arab Emirates at various times since it was first launched. The channel’s managing editor is Azzam Tamimi who has come under suspicion of financing terrorist activities in the past and is known unofficially as the Hamas special envoy to the UK. Viewers with interests in alternative viewpoints from an Arab perspective will find this is an interesting channel.
