The first of the series, “The Youth of Yarmouk,” will premiere on Friday, March 14th, 20:00 GMT (23:00 KSA). This documentary was produced at the wake of the revolution and has become a living testimonial of those living in the Palestinian camp. The award winning short film features the harrowing story of a young boy, included in the filming of the documentary, who was later captured by the Syrian regime and tortured to death.

On Sunday March 16th, Al Arabiya will show “The Doctor of the Revolution,” a story about a UK-educated doctor named Rami Habib who stayed in the country despite the dangerous conflict to support the Syrian opposition.

“Refugees,” the fourth documentary in Al Arabiya’s series, records the agony of the Syrian people displaced by war and shows their journey attempting to reach Turkey.
