Jihan El-Tahri was born in Beirut, Lebanon, and is a writer, director and producer of documentary films. She is a French and Egyptian national.

In 1984, she received her BA in Political Science, and in 1986 her MA in Political Science from the American University in Cairo. She worked as a news correspondent with U.S. News and World Report and Reuters, TV researcher, and associate producer in Tunisia, Lebanon, Iraq, Jordan, Algeria, and Egypt between 1984 to 1990. As a correspondent, El-Tahri covered politics in the Middle East.

In 1990, El-Tahri started directing and producing documentaries for French television, and for the BBC since 1995. In 1992 she filmed Osama bin Laden's training camps in Sudan. She also provided professional support on four of the Steps for the Future films in 2001. The documentary, The House of Saud, appeared on the BBC in 2004 and on PBS in 2005. Her most recent documentary, 'Cuba! Africa! Revolution!', appeared on BBC in 2007.

Film synopsis: 
This absorbing documentary follows the transition of the ANC from a liberation organisation into South Africa's ruling party. On 20 September 2008, Jacob Zuma, the president of the ruling African National Congress, toppled the South African president Thabo Mbeki from power when his party's national executive committee voted to sack him. Mbeki accepted his political demise calmly, welcomed the news and agreed to go quietly. The vote to oust him was the culmination of an epic power struggle between Mbeki, seen by many as an aloof intellectual the ANC sent into exile for 28 years, and Zuma, the Zulu farm-boy with no formal education who spent 10 years in jail on Robben Island, and who earlier this year became South Africa's third president since the end of apartheid. This absorbing documentary follows the transition of the ANC from a liberation organisation into South Africa's ruling party, through the evolution of the relationship between Mbeki and Zuma. The two men, both 66 and once comrades-in-arms, have been engaged in a bitter power struggle that has threatened to destroy the movement that enfranchised black South Africans, and to drag the country deeper into turmoil. Behind the Rainbow features key interviews with senior ANC personnel including Jacob Zuma, Kgalema Motlanthe, Pallo Jordan, Thabo Mbeki and Terror Lekota.
