JORDANIAN ROYAL FAMILY

• Jordan: The Royal Tour

Jordan - The Royal Tour

Although this is a travel documentary on Jordan, it features many members of the royal family, including King Abdullah II. The website appears to have the full documentary. I don’t know how to download it off of a PC. On my Mac, I go to Tools > Downloader Helper > .flv file name > save. You can also go to YouTube for the documentary, which has been split into five parts.

• A German channel also recently aired a documentary on Abdullah and Rania as part of a six-part series on royal couples that you can watch on its website.

The webpage:
ZDF.de - Majestät!
Click on the video icon at the right.

• Another German channel did a 43-minute documentary on Abdullah and Rania in 2007 called Palaste Der Macht — Herrscher Des Orients. It aired again this past spring. The website does not have a posted video.

The webpage:
http://www.arte.tv/de/woche/244,broa...year=2008.html

• I know the BBC did a documentary on Abdullah and Rania a couple of years ago but I’ve never been able to get my hands on it.

• However, the BBC World just aired a 45-minute documentary on July 26, 2008 called Rania: The YouTube Queen.

The webpage:
BBC NEWS | Middle East | Queen Rania takes on stereotypes

• The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) did a documentary on notable Muslim women some years back that included both Queen Rania and Queen Noor. It was called Women of Influence. The webpage no longer works.

• A&E’s Biography program (before it became its own channel) did a documentary on Queen Noor called Queen Noor: Between Two Realms. It has since been rereleased as a DVD. I found it on the Canadian site of Amazon.

Amazon.ca: Biography: Queen Noor: DVD



MOROCCAN ROYAL FAMILY
• As part of the same series, the German channel will air a documentary on Mohammed and Salma of Morocco in early August. The webpage doesn’t yet have a promo video or the documentary. The promo will appear just days before the scheduled airing while the documentary itself will be posted soon afterwards. I think it airs on August 5.

The webpage:
ZDF.de - Freiheit für die Frauen!

A new documentary on Empress Farah, called the Queen and I, was shown at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2009. You can see a movie trailer on the Apple website (even download it).

Apple - Movie Trailers - The Queen and I

I don't know if it will be released in theatres or shown on television (possibly HBO?).

TV series about the Ottoman sultans is controversial

Being in harem a distinction for Ottoman women, author Sancar says - Sunday's Zaman

Since the first episode was broadcast on Jan. 5, the series titled “Muhteşem Yüzyıl” (Magnificent Century) has sparked severe criticism for the manner in which it depicts the empire and the life of the sultan Süleyman the Magnificent.

"Highlighting the many inaccuracies in the TV series, which she says stem from an Orientalist approach to the harem, author and lecturer Aslı Sancar says women in the royal harem and the Ottoman Empire in general were not the passive, oppressed, depraved and highly sexualized figures portrayed by 19th century Western Orientalism. “For Ottoman women it was a distinction to be in the royal harem,” she says.

According Sancar, the Western fantasy of the harem and the actual harem are completely different. “The Western fantasy of the harem saw the women in it as beautiful sex objects. A woman was never seen as a real person or, for example, as a mother. The myth portrays women as having no agency of their own. They are totally at the will of their master or husband. Actually, this was the case in the West. Women did not have legal agency, for example, until the end of the 19th century. Ottoman women, however, had a broad range of legal rights for centuries from the outset of the Ottoman Empire,” she says."

Silent film on Royal family history and rituals | TruthDive
After the unearthing of treasures from Sri Padmanabhswamy temple controlled by the Travancore Royal family , a silent movie Marthanda Varma has come back to focus.. It chronicles the troubled times of the Travancore Royal family led by then ruler Marthanda Varma battling Nair feudal lords known as Ettuvettu Pillai .
The eight feudal warlords wanted to install a dummy King but Varma decided to take them on.
Noted Historian C V Raman Pillai book on the same subject was the source for director P.V.Rao’s film.
This was the first film to be based on a historical novel and after Vigathakumaran. The screenplay was written by the director himself and produced by R Sunderaj. Naik handled the camera and Sri Rajeswari films distributed the film in 1913.
