Discovering the World – Qatar, Pearl of the Future – Episode 174

This Emirate, which has grown out of the desert, has been filmed by Pierre Brouwers from every angle. Qatar is in fact a new and rapidly developing country in the middle of a construction boom. Futuristic skyscrapers emerge from nothing, bedouins barter their camels for powerful 4 x 4s, falconers equip their birds with electronic devices, and the camel jockeys are now robots. A documentary with extraordinary images to outline the shape of a new country.
