Documentary on Iran

With all of the saber-rattling going on vis-a-vis Iran, I thought that I’d provide a link to what I thought was a balanced view of the country of Iran. I don’t know a lot about Iran, other than that it is a Persian country whose language is Farsi, not Arabic. Steve Ricks, the narrator, is a well-known television personality who focuses on European travel. Those who own a TV, unlike me, probably know this. Anyway, if you are interested and have the time … the video is about 55 minutes long. It was a nice introduction to the country for me, even if it was filled with platitudes and over-simplifications. If I wanted to know more, I’d read The History of Iran, by Elton L. Daniel, to fill me in on the details that are missing in this documentary.
