Al-Sharqiya, Iraq's first privately owned satellite network, has introduced the country's first reality television show. The show is called Labor and Materials, and over the course of six weeks houses blasted by U.S. bombs are put back together. Freelance writer Annia Ciezadlo wrote about the show for The Christian Science Monitor. She talks with NPR's Scott Simon.
