Missing Sheikh Screws Up TV Schedule

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

On Sunday I mentioned how one of Abu Dhabi’s Sheikhs has gone missing in a glider accident (see UAE President’s Brother Missing).

The search in Morocco is still on, but now it’s affecting the television schedule in the UAE; the final episode of Million’s Poet scheduled for tonight has been postponed.

Million’s Poet (I hope the name sounds cooler in Arabic) is like American Idol, but with Nabati poetry instead of singing.

Probably more modest dress, as well.

Check out the Khaleej Times’ article: “Final episode of ‘Million’s Poet’ postponed.”

UPDATE: Rescuers found the sheikh’s body on Tuesday. Abu Dhabi will observe three days of mourning.
