This three-part documentary looks into the royal family of Saudi Arabia, as a new Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman, claims that he will transform the country.

Crown Prince Mohammed says he wants a return to “moderate Islam” in the country. In the first episode, we examine the prince’s family connections, in particular those who still advocate a much more conservative form of the religion.

House of Saud is on BBC Two at 21.00.
