I get a regular news feed on mention of any news stories Baha'i and found this story about a Canadian TV show called "little Mosque on the Prairie". The show is seen in sixty countries so I was wondering if any of my Muslim friends had seen the show and what you thought of it?:)

I am afraid I have not seen it and doubt I could get it here. The only Canadian programme I have seen is Huda but I thoroughly enjoy that. :)
