that video really is a harsh reality of an undemocratic government. Still, i know incidents like that occur, but i strongly support their protest of the election results...even if it does result in violence.
BBC radio 4 are repeating the series Iran: A Revolutionary StateIt was first broadcast in 2006 and I heard the first two episodes yesterday and today. Part 3 tomorrow at 11.30 and the previous programmes are on i player.Fascinating stuffCathy
CathyThanks for the heads-up; it is obviously a late-change because of recent events as the series isn't shown in my Radio Times for this week.I think I did listen to the series when it was originally broadcast, but it probably bears a second-hearing, even for someone like me who spent many years in that part of the world (although my only prospective visit to Iran itself, in late '78/ early '79, had to be cancelled because of the deteriorating situation there at the time.I'm an avid R4 listener and would have missed this repeat if you hadn't told me about it; thanks again.
