(MENAFN - Arab News) WAIT CITY: The past present and future of Kuwait will be emphasised in a high quality feature film shown to millions of British Airways passengers around the globe reported arabtimesonline.com. From pearl diving and diwaniya hospitality to multi-million dollar businesses and young instagram entrepreneurs these are just some of the characteristics of the Arab Gulf nation that are featured in this film due to be shown in August on board more than 3000 flights around the world. 'Go on a journey through this unique country steeped in history driven by innovation and made strong by tradition" says the narrator of the informative 40-minute long series of four parts entitled 'Kuwait: Through Our Eyes".The work was carried out thanks to the combined efforts of content-driven audiovisual providing company QCPTV contracted by BA and the Kuwait Ministry of Information's External Media Department. The ministry's media office said that it was proud at the country being the first in the Middle East to be featured in one of only 20 such international works. 'Produced in Full HD it reflects an enlightening image of Kuwait and its legacy and it is a bonus that the film will be featured on board the airline during peak summer months" said a ministry statement.In addition to its worldwide appeal the statement also hailed the contribution of the work on the local scale. 'We all know that Kuwait is a beautiful nation but we have not reflected this image through hi-tech capabilities." The film also does not carry any cost burden whatsoever on the ministry as it was co-funded by local sponsors with the ministry's only contribution through facilitating information and contacts for the production crew. The External Media Department saw the potential of the film and its positive implications for the country and that was the driving force behind its approval.The ministry has plans to produce similar works in the future aimed at identifying its regional and international accomplishments also in Full HD capabilities. The filming of the program started in late April with its first draft out in June according to QCPTV executive director Lawrence Ireton.
