Iraqi's hit house makeover show
A home makeover-style TV programme in Iraq that offers needy families the opportunity to have their war-damaged homes re-built from scratch has become a massive hit.

Labour And Materials, broadcast on Iraqi satellite channel Al Sharqiya, does not merely redecorate a room, but reconstructs entire properties destroyed in the ongoing conflict in the country.

The programme makers select families whose homes have been made uninhabitable either during the war or since, and reconstruct it to the extent of supplying new furniture - and even shiny new kitchen gadgets - for free.

"We knew it would be virtually impossible to get the house back to how it used to be," participant Raham Majad, whose house was destroyed in August, told BBC World Service's Outlook programme.

"A week after the explosion, Sharqiya channel came to our house, along with many other television channels, to see how much damage had been done and how many people had been killed.

"Three days later, Sharqiya came again, to tell us they'd rebuild our house - and pay for it too."

LMAO!! Oh no!!! American influence and culture is slowly makin its way to iraq! As if it wasn't bad enough that there are many crappy house makeover shows on TLC now we have the Iraqui version with a twist.


Still they're doing some good by helping affected families rebuild.

I heard that tey wanted to film a series of Americas Most Wanted in Iraq with that retired sheriff. The military said it was too dangerous for him so they declined permission.
