PBS: The Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia

Last October 2019, a year after the murder of the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the US public service channel, PBS, broadcast a two-hour documentary, The Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia.

The documentary looks at the rise of Muhammad bin Salman and his handling of dissent.

The Saudis have a lot of money at their disposal with which they have bought newspapers, TV channels, and numerous Muslim organisations across the world. They have purchased spying software from Israel to keep tabs on Saudi dissidents. Successive US governments have provided critical support to the repressive Saudi regime in return for huge amounts of Saudi money being spent on the US arms industry.

Amidst all this corruption, the PBS documentary is a breathtakingly honest look at the secretive Kingdom and its destructive Crown Prince.
