Ramadan 2016, Day 7 - Camel Television

Camels are serious business in the Gulf. Herding is not as widespread as in the past but camel racing remains a popular sport and there are also events like camel beauty contests, for example:

I have seen camel races but never a beauty pagent. Turns out everyone can watch if they know the timing of the pagent, boy was I surprised when a friend told me that there's a TV station dedicated to camels and camel events, Al Saha TV.

If you can't see the livestream there's an example of the programming on this YouTube video (10 minutes of what I assume are camels gearing up for a race or an upcoming beauty pagent).

So there you go, your TV station for all things camel.
