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.

• 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.
• 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 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.

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.
