This is a BBC documentary on the reign of the last Shahanshah of Iran, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi who was overthrown by Khomeini’s Islamic ‘revolution’ in 1979.

Many aspects of the Shah’s rule are evocated : his very personality as a king who hesitated when confronted with difficulties to crack down on dissent and as a king who wanted Iran to attain equality amongst western nations and the free world at large through a quick, ambitious and successful development program.
