A documentary series chronicling the lives of UAE military personnel, offering never-seen-before insight, will go on-air from tomorrow on Abu Dhabi Al Emarat TV channel.
The series, entitled Hayati Walaskariya (My Military/My Life), is a unique production by Abu Dhabi-based Image Nation, a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Media, in close cooperation with the UAE Armed Forces, and will offer a rare and exclusive look at the lives of the UAE Armed Forces personnel, capturing glimpses of their demanding professional and personal lives.
The four-part series, Hayati Walaskariya, will debut on Abu Dhabi Al Emarat channel on March 5 and will air weekly. In each episode, viewers will gain insight into various aspects of the Armed Forces, from world-class pilots to junior cadets just beginning their careers. Viewers will also get to see the behind-the-scenes challenges of balancing family and social commitments in such demanding jobs.
Mohammed Al Mubarak, Chairman of Image Nation, said: “We are immensely honoured to have worked in partnership with the UAE Armed Forces on this unique and exciting project. We would like to thank them for allowing us, and the viewers, an exclusive look into their lives behind the uniform.”
“We hope that the show will not only add to the admiration and appreciation we have for our troops, but will also reaffirm to the UAE public the level of discipline, and mental and physical strength it takes to be a member of the Armed Forces.”
Eissa Al Mail, Head of Abu Dhabi Al Emarat, said: “Abu Dhabi Al Emarat focuses on profiling local society through diverse programming that truly reflects the Emirati culture, identity and heritage. The programmes on this channel cover everything from general entertainment, to news and current affairs, to major events happening across the UAE.”
“The collaboration with Image Nation and the premiere of this show on our network is another important step towards fulfilling Abu Dhabi Media’s commitment to public service.”
“The series is aimed at increasing awareness of the role of the UAE’s Armed Forces, offering viewers a glimpse into the lives of its personnel and the challenging duties they endure. We are certain this program will be a success and audiences will enjoy the opportunity to learn more about the daily encounters of our soldiers,” he added.

Episode 1 – Life on the Move/Hayat Al Tarhaal
In Episode 1, the documentary profiles men who protect the UAE’s maritime and land borders, and the engineer who ensures they are armed with state-of-the-art equipment. We go with these men on board a navy ship, The Corvette, and find out what tactics the team use to defend the country.
After a tough day at work, the cameras get a behind-the-scenes peek at the home lives of the UAE’s armed forces. While one soldier prefers the calming and uplifting nature of his home emirate, the others can’t seem to get enough of the excitement on the job.
