Through Persian Eyes

Professor Ali Ansari, twice a guest on Six Pillars (and a guest when we appeared on BBC3’s Nightwaves), presents a world history as seen through the perspective of the Persians/Iranians, called Through Persian Eyes.

The show is an audio journey from the ancient past to today and reportedly asks listeners to rethink their understanding of Iran. We think the aim of the show, however, must be to ask listeners to rethink their own Western history, from the viewpoint of Persian eyes?
