shown in cinemas in Iran ...I remember vividly ...I was only a kid in my pre-teens . My father was very fond of these guys and he talked about them very often . He took our whole family to see the film with so much enthusiasm...

    I still remember in their trip through the jungles of Africa , natives were filmed cutting into the trunk of the trees and nibbling on some kind of a plant worm ....considered as delicacy .....

"baradaran-e- Omidvar " were truly pioneers in world expeditions...

امروزه روز در ۴ روز میتوان دورِ دنیا زد و هزار افتخار کسب کرد اما کارِ برادرانِ امیدوار بی‌ نظیر بود،اول آنکه ایرانی بودند و دوم اینکه تا بدان زمان این چنین چیزی شنیده نشده بود.

چندی قبل از انقلاب ۵۷ شمسی‌ عده‌ای این بحث را به وجود آوردند که شاید اینان در این امر تخیلاتِ فراوان به کار برده و زیاده نویسی کرده ند،حتی چند مجله اجتماعی و علمی‌ آن زمان،از جمله دانشمند و اطلاعات هفتگی این قضیه را دنبال میکردند تا بفهمند آخرِ سر نخ به کجا می‌‌رسد... خدا داند جریان از چه قرار بود و تا به کجا حقیقت... !
