This BBC report remarks that today saw to the first time a female presenter has been shown on Egyptian television wearing a traditional Islamic headscarf since 1960.
This interesting development is yet another change in Egypt since the ousting of the 29-year-ruling regime of Hosni Mubarak.
During his reign -- as the report points out -- there was an 'unofficial' ban on women television presenters from covering their hair.
However, presenter Fatima Nabil's appearance today with her hair covered as par Islamic tradition marks the end of that ban, and she is reportedly expected to be followed by several of her news and weather presenting companions.
What will be interesting to see now is if the headscarf will become mandatory apparel for female television presenters or will it simply be up to personal religious preferences of the respective individual presenters themselves.
Neither way, Nabil's appearance on Egyptian television donning her cream coloured head scarf represents another notable episode in the changing social and political scene in her country.
