DUBAI: “History of the Emirates,” a documentary series by Image Nation Abu Dhabi, launched its premiere on Friday night with a light show projected onto the Burj Khalifa.
On Friday night, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa lit up with a preview of the documentary’s content, including archaeological discoveries, pearl-diving and animated ancient landscapes.
The film covers 125,000 years of the UAE’s history, from the earliest human presence in the region to the national union in 1971. New episodes will air each night from Nov. 24-28 at 9pm on all national TV channels.
Created in association with Image Nation Abu Dhabi and Atlantic Productions, the three-part series, narrated by Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons, uses CGI technology, 360-degree camerawork and archaeological footage to depict the history of the UAE.
Etisalat and Du, two of UAE’s mobile network services, will display ‘HISTORY UAE’ on mobiles throughout the country to promote the documentary.
