Crisis In Iran: Death Of The Shah And The Hostage Crisis

This special program about the 1979-81 U.S. hostage crisis in Iran tells the inside story of a siege that shaped our times. Aired when America and Iran are hinting at renewed dialogue after 20 years of unbending hostility, it tells the intimate human story of a global crisis. Both the American hostages and their Iranian captors reveal for the first time what really happened when radical Islamic students seized the U.S. Embassy, seizing 52 hostages and defying a superpower. Filmed in Iran, America and France, this program follows the story in compelling and sometimes terrifying detail of interrogation, solitary confinement and mock execution. Dramatic and harrowing, this original documentary conveys the frustrations of secret top-level negotiators and gives the inside story of the failed helicopter rescue mission that cost the lives of eight Americans. The program also tells the story through the eyes of the Iranians who carried out the Embassy siege. Former students, Ayatollahs and leading politicians talk frankly for the first time about the passions that inspired them, their doubts and fears, and their relationships with the hostages during the 14-month-long crisis.
