Fall of the Shah

The revolution that shook the world. A drama based on real events in Iran 40 years ago. Starring Dame Diana Rigg.

Fall Of The Shah tracks the collapse of the Shah of Iran and the rise of a forceful new Islamic Republic.

The visceral epic drama is seen from a range of vantage points: within the Shah’s royal circle; in the torturers’ prison; on the bloody streets of Tehran; at the heart of Ayatollah Khomeini’s revolutionary leadership; in the confused reactions within a sometime occupied American Embassy and right up in the White House itself.
