A Very British Ramadan kicks off Channel 4’s ‘provocative’ season on Islamic festival

Channel 4’s “provocative” series of programmes about Ramadan will begin tonight with A Very British Ramadan. The documentary will follow Rashid Khan, a former professional rugby league player and star of Channel 4’s Make Bradford British, as he travels across Britain to explore the logistical preparations for the holy month of Ramadan. The programme will hear from a range of British Muslims throughout Ramadan on how they cope with daily life, and the physical and spiritual effects of fasting. A Very British Ramadan is the first programme in 4Ramadan, a season of programmes on Channel 4 reflecting what life is like for Britain’s Muslim population who observe the religious festival.
