Iran and Her Neighbours, Wednesday 20 Sept 2006 11:00-11:30

Montage of Iran flag and Ayotollah Khomeini and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
John Simpson considers Iran's growing regional influence in a time of political turmoil in the Middle East.





 Listen to Iran and her Neighbours

Is Iran becoming a regional superpower, capable of withstanding pressures from the West and providing a beacon of Islamic democracy? Or, is her obstinacy with the nuclear issue going to lead to her further isolation and potential destruction?

At the crucial times in Iran's political development, Simpson has been there; interviewing the Ayatollah Khomeini on his flight back from Paris to Tehran in 1979 to most recently covering the election of the President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. John Simpson, the BBC's World Affairs Editor, brings his world renowned experience of reporting from the region for over thirty years, to a subject which allows us insight into the recent past and possible future of Iran.
