The ongoing price paid by Palestinians is easier to measure than that of Yasser Arafat, the former leader of the PLO and one of the most controversial leaders of the 20th century. To many a hero, to many others a villain, Arafat remains an enigma. Arafat's leadership continues to divide and polarise opinion, though there can be little dispute of its impact on the Middle East.
Frost Over the World looks at the first installment of a landmark documentary series on the price of leadership, which reveals the sacrifices made and the ultimate price paid, both personally and politically, in order to lead a nation.
Sir David Frost speaks to Suha Arafat, the widow of Yasser Arafat, and the creators of the documentary film seriesThe Price of Kings to discuss the man behind the headlines, the husband and father. She considers his legacy, his role as father of modern Palestine and confronts the ongoing allegations of corruption.
"Now we know who the corrupt people are. The Arab Spring is revealing all the atrocities of the Arab world. I always tell my daughter: You have to be proud of baba, baba is the only leader in the Arab world who was not kicked by his own people."
