On Sundays CBS News runs a world-famous programme called “60 Minutes” that is watched by 14-15 million people. On January 15th, 2012 it had a 13 minute programme on Qatar and the Middle-East in general. It talked about Arab spring, Qatar’s current developments and its future prospects, had interviews with Qatar’s leaders, discussed the role of Al-Jazeera in the Middle-East etc. During the programme the host of the show comes to a conclusion about Qatar that: “This is a pretty good place to live!”
It is one of the best videos introducing Qatar and the Middle-East that I’ve seen in a long time. I strongly recommend everybody who’s interested in the region to have a look at this video.
