Farah, she is so small in reality, but in the minds of thousands of Belgian people she is monstrous. The impact of television on society can not be underestimated.
Gert Van Mol, CEO of Life!tv Broadcasting Company (picture right), decides to allow a girl with headscarf present a music program on the Belgian television station 'Life!tv'. The music program, "Music 41", is produced by Said Aghassaiy (picture left), alias Pita Said, a well known singer and composer. The decision starts a nationwide discussion on the issue of women wearing headscarfs in society. Farah (middle) is 24 and studies to become a journalist. She is the first presenter on a national television station in Europe wearing a headscarf. Van Mol says these days changes in society start in the living room, not always in an election booth. Life!tv is to be seen on Telenet nr 41 in Flanders and via www.lifetv.eu worldwide.
