Abu Dhabi: The first episodes of a documentary, titled, "My Story," inspired by the book "My Story, 50 Stories in Fifty Years" by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Dubai Ruler, enjoyed record views on Dubai TV’s multiple channels and platforms.
The series is being shown on Dubai TV every Sunday at 9pm (1700GMT) and repeated several times a day throughout the week at various times on Sama Dubai TV, Dubai One, and the Awan digital network, said a WAM report.
Viewers can interact with the daily episodes on the hashtag, "#mystory," via the Dubai Media Foundation’s and Dubai TV’s accounts on social media, and Shaikh Mohammed’s account on YouTube.
The first documentary drama of its kind in the country will present the various stages of the life of Shaikh Mohammed over 50 episodes.
A team of some 100 people participated in making the programme, including 20 major actors. Production took over nine months to plan and prepare, and filming took 30 days in different locations, through the use of the latest contemporary cinematic technology in 4K and anamorphic lenses.
"The Culture and Arts Authority in Dubai is honoured to help create this high-level artwork, which embodies the giving march of the builder of modern Dubai, Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, by fully supervising its pre-production stages and verifying the accuracy of all details before filming”, said Hala Badri, director-general of the Dubai Culture and Arts Authority.
