Beautiful videos, crystal-clear, I watched all 5 videos. The reporter was great, he asked great questions, was super-kind to everyone, and blended right in with the local people, very charismatic!

      One thing I disagreed with the reporter is that he called Iran democracy at least 5 times in the me, Iran is a theocracy, not a democracy!

Thanks for the great videos!

Hable con Diego sobre este documental y me dijo que los de seguridad nacional (vezarat-e etelaat) no les permitieron que tengan libertades para grabar mas y tenian que hacerlo con mucha precaucion ! Asi que la cosa no ha salido como es debido.

Siempre es agradable ver a un compañero. Yo tuve el honor de trabajar con ellos y son los mejores.

Diego ,Je vous verrai plus tard mon cher ami :=) .


Nice presenter but topics were...Lebanon, S.Africa ahead of IRan

by mannya2001 on

The presenter is really cool.  But the topics covered were really just aweful...

there should have been more emophasis on the Iranian people, inside their houses...was there really nothing in isfahan except for the basketball player??

Anyway, it upsets me that countries like South Africa have pulled themselves out of the dungeons of apratheid and are actually a great tourist/convention destination.  How did they do it and yet in Iran we're still can;t do as much

It really burns me though that in Dubai & Lebanon, tourism is big and local people enjoy their lives, yet in Iran we have to deal with 40 yr old cars.  Isn't Dubai an Arab country, aren't they supposed to hold the torch of Islam, or is DUbai just like Mohammad, a life in contradiction

Even in Lebanon, people enjoy their lives, yet Hezbollah claims it is the land of resistance.  Heck , why can't we import the land of resistance of Lebanon to Iran too? Something for everyone...
