But with President Hassan Rouhani coming to power in August last year, some freedoms are returning. Cyrus Amini of the BBC Persian service joins Click to shed light on the recent announcements.

Nigeria's Internet Privacy
The Commonwealth secretary-general has been hosting an ICT Ministerial Forum in London to discuss subjects such as cyber governance, the growing importance of ICT and ministerial co-operation. Click is joined by one of those ministers, Mrs Omobola Johnson, Minister of Communication Technology for Nigeria to hear what lessons Nigerians might have learnt from the fall out over Edward Snowden's revelations. Can Nigerians trust their government, mobile phone operators and internet providers with their privacy?

Composing in Colour
The composer, Neil Harbisson, has a rare medical condition which has left him unable to distinguish colour. Instead his world is black and white. But technology has come to his aid. Through a device called an eyeborg, surgically attached to his skull, he is able to translate colours into sound. Neil Harbisson hears colours, and recently, collaborating on the Vodafone First project, he put on a first ever colour-composed concert in Barcelona. Harbisson joins Click to describe his unique talent.
