"Dishing Democracy" goes behind the scenes at Arabic television channel MBC in Cairo and its hit all-female talk show, KALAM NAWAEM. Similar in style to ABC's THE VIEW, the top-rated program is hosted by four presenters of different ages, nationalities, and points of view who tackle such sensitive issues as homosexuality, domestic violence, women voting, and social and political equality between the sexes. WIDE ANGLE demonstrates how the satellite television revolution is bringing unexpected voices for social reform into living rooms throughout the Middle East -- in primetime.
