Danny Ghosen bothers to imaging the Arab world on tv
Former Publicity reporter Danny Ghosen (39) does to the image of the Arab world on television and online.
“That piece of the world is not really only from people who themselves blow up. There is so much léven, and that I wanted to show,” says Ghosen in an interview in the Belgian magazine Humo.
Ghosen was referring to the series of Danny in Arabistan, which was previously broadcast by the NTR and from 24 July will be repeated on the Belgian channel Canvas.
In that series visited Ghosen six Arab countries that are often negative in the news. Ghosen wanted a different side, but had a lot of trouble with it.
“Because the Arab world is hard: the people had to struggle hard for their existence. I had the itself is difficult: during the day you meet quite often people who have no access to water, but then you have to go as a journalist happy to your hotel, where you have a soothing shower and a nice tafelt in the restaurant.”
The born in Lebanon, the presenter also visited his homeland, this would ultimately be the toughest episode.
“(…) makes me still a pain to visit it. Every time I think: ‘It is still worse than the last time.’ That has to do with the criminals in power, and the land draining. And that two million refugees who are in Lebanon to stay put, the country is also under pressure.”
