Celebrate Eid al-Fitr with content across the SBS network

SBS is celebrating Eid al-Fitr to mark the end of Ramadan, the Muslim month of fasting, prayer and community, with an exciting feast of food, entertainment, news and events for all Australians to enjoy and celebrate the rich diversity of our country.

Across the network, SBS will share distinctive content in 16 languages: Arabic, Bahasa Indonesia, Cantonese, Dari, English, French, Hindi, Hebrew, Italian, Mandarin, Pashto, Russian, Spanish, Tamil, Turkish and Urdu. This includes rolling local news coverage, articles and explainers, bespoke teacher resources, a new Ramadan podcast and recipes from different cuisines to strengthen community and connection whilst entertaining and informing.

James Taylor, Managing Director of SBS said: SBS is delighted to be celebrating Eid al-Fitr with distinctive content and storytelling in more than 16 languages. It's a wonderful invitation to all Australians to be part of this important cultural celebration, he said.

Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan, is a global multicultural, multilingual occasion observed by more than 800,000 Muslim-Australians of diverse backgrounds. We're proud for SBS to be at the forefront of sharing this celebration.

SBS Audio is covering Ramadan and Eid in Arabic, Bahasa Indonesia, Dari, English, Pashto, Tamil, Turkish, Urdu and on NITV Radio with stories from across contemporary Australia and beyond. SBS Arabic24 is providing rolling coverage, including an interview with the Grand Mufti of Australia.

Newly-arrived migrants are also included in the celebration through SBS's Settlement Guide series with explainers in English on Ramadan and Eid, and religious fasting and how it affects health. SBS Learn has produced two teacher resources to use in the classroom on observing Ramadan and celebrating Eid.

SBS Audio has also specially commissioned My Ramadan -a five-part podcast exploring the experiences of prominent Muslim-Australians in a nuanced and joyful way, hosted by Walkley Award winning journalist Sarah Malik and available here

The Arabic Collection has the best of SBS On Demand in spoken Arabic or with Arabic subtitles. SBS documentary The Swap will be available with Arabic subtitles in this collection. The Swap documents the journey of six students from Australias largest Islamic school, swap places with six students from Catholic colleges and a secular state high school.

Continuing the Eid celebrations, SBS On Demand is offering a curated list of 32 films in the Celebrating Eid Collection to stream including drama, comedy, cooking and documentaries. Films herald from all over the globe including Baba Amin (1950) a classic family film in Arabic from pioneering Egyptian director Youssef Chahine. It tells the story of a father who passes away after a shady investment and watches his family from the afterlife. Under the Fig Trees (2021) is a Tunisian coming-of-age film about a group of young people working during the summer harvest. The list includes films in Arabic, Cantonese, Dari, English, French, Hindi, Hebrew, Italian, Mandarin, Russian, Spanish, Tamil, Turkish and Urdu.

Also on SBS On Demand is Michael Palin: Into Iraq, which explores what life is like for the 40 million people who live in Iraq, also referred to as the cradle of civilization, and looking into its past as well as its troubled present.
