Muslims Like Us Episode 1 of 2

Put ten British Muslims with contrasting world views in a house together and press record. What emerges is a passionate debate, honest disagreements, humour and moments of insight that reveal what is like to be a Muslim in Britain today.

On the surface, Britain's 2.7 million Muslims are united in faith. But behind closed doors, in Muslim homes across the country, there is ongoing discussion about what and who best represents Islam. Labels like Sunni, Shi'a, liberal, conservative and moderate don't do it justice. Will the real British Muslim please stand up?

She or he is faced with competing and contradictory voices. Some suggest an orthodox version of the faith is entirely at home in Britain. Others demand compromises to be made by Muslims in order to integrate. This unique and bold social experiment witnesses these dilemmas played out for real.

In episode one, the ten British Muslims who represent the diversity of their faith move into their new home. As they meet each other and settle in, they begin to explore how their faith impacts their lives, from sleeping arrangements, cooking, and prayer to dress and culture. Topical, important and, at times, charged exchanges shine a light on what it means to be a Muslim in modern Britain.
