Then & Now - U.A.E

This short film compares and contrasts the UAE of today with that depicted in historical films, going back to the 1950s. Homes made from palm fronds have been replaced by skyscrapers including the tallest building in the world. Camel transport has been replaced by fast cars and state-of-the-art metro rail systems. Sailing dhows used for pearling and trade have been replaced by container ships and luxurious cruising boats. The earliest flights to the UAE on old BOAC bi-planes have given way to ultra modern airports and A380 aircraft. This film puts the country's amazing progress into perspective.
