Either Iran is such an enigma or these guys are clueless!

Three so-called experts in Iranian history going back & forth for an hour and fail to put it in layman's terms and converge on what Iran & being an Iranian mean!

There lies the paradox. Either Iran is such an enigma or these guys are clueless!

BBC news a hopeless waste of our time and British tax

Iranians need to give up on BBC. It is a government propaganda machine. Why do you think it would listen to your writings? I gave up on HYS years ago. I closed my account and wrote them why. Never heard back.

There are far more reasonable ways to get information from internet. Why bother reading BBC when you may go right to research papers. I am able to download papers and read them for myself. No need to listen to some talking heads.

I have the highest regard for British researchers not BBC news. BBC should keep to making shows now propaganda. From Doctor Who to Monarch of the Glenn they are wonderful. BBC new on the other hand is past it point.

Wrong people interviewed by the wrong man

None of the people on this panel are experts in the topic and the moderator is a non-entity who is hoping to be an entity.

by alimostofi on

In 1978 when BBC was literally the only media in Iran, we used to write to them and complain about this sort of thing. Same for The Times and Guardian. The majority of the writers were from the Indian sub-continent and they saw Iran as another Pakistan. So Khomeini was what was accepted by the likes of Dilip Hiro. When the internet started, BBC had a forum and we put so many comments there, that they shut down the discussion forums.

BBC is a political tool while Rawlinson was a scholar. I revise my statemement. Many British researchers did fine work. It is their government policy that is a problem. BBC is the official vocie of that policy. 

I greatly value work of British and other researchers. But despise the politically motivated BBC garbage.

Thank you great work and keep going you are a good Iranian.

VPK: Sir Henry Rawlinson

VPK: Sir Henry Rawlinson would have a bone to pick with these illiterates. Baba be in bozorgi ro Behisutun neveshteh. Koorand? And a Brit translated it.

BBC is Bull

I do not need BBC to give me an idea of who I am. The worst enemies of Iran telling me who I am! 

People do not waste your times with BBC. If you want to know about Iran read the ancient texts. Read accounts by  Herodotus.

BBC has an agenda; Herodotus is far more accurate about things. BBC zip it. Next will be me telling the Brits who they are but ain't pretty.

Totally wrong.

by alimostofi on

The oral tradition is a lot older Sassanian. The Greeks have mentioned Iran well before. There are archaeological evidences. omg The Zend Avesta has detailed records of Iranian nationalism. Wow how incorrect.
