There is a really interesting video (from 1967) about the UAE on metacafe; it mainly covers Sheikh Zayed and the core culture of the UAE of yesteryear.
here is a link
If you want to become more culturally aware; I suggest you watch the video.
unfortunately, Etisalat deem metacafe as 'immoral' or somesuch, so until I can locate the 2 part series on another unblocked source, you can't watch it if you're behind the great firewall.
