Monte-Carlo TV fest opens with doc for first time

On Sunday the Monte-Carlo Television Festival opened with a world premiere of a documentary about peace in the Middle East. This was the first time the festival has opened with a documentary film. Back Door Channels: The Price of Peace looks at the Camp David Accords and its relationship to both stability in the region and the current Palestinian conflict. The film features personalities and experts such as former President Jimmy Carter, Boutros Boutros-Ghali, Henry Kissinger and Wolf Blitzer. It is a timely film to open the fest given Obama's Cairo speech.
