Description
Program Description
"'Nancy Dickerson Special Report: The Middle East' is a one-hour documentary which integrates on-location footage from Egypt, Israel and Saudi Arabia with portions of separate, exclusive interviews with President Anwar Sadat, Prime Minister Menachem Begin and Foreign Minister Prince Saud al Faisal. This documentary marks the first time these three leaders have voiced their views in the same TV forum. It is addressed to adult audiences interested in learning perspectives of three Middle East leaders. "Some of these issues considered by the leaders include dealing with the stress of Russian advances in Asia and the newly intensified potential of a Syrian-Israeli war. Foreign Minister Saud explains his feelings on the importance of bringing the Palestine Liberation Organization into the peace process. President Sadat shares his feelings about when another 'Carter summit' would be appropriate for Egypt and Israel and offers his opinions of Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini. Prime Minister Begin speaks of the need to be alert to the unpredictability of the Soviet Union, noting how the invasion of Afghanistan differs from other recent Communist incursions."--1980 Peabody Awards entry form.
