The Hundred-Year WarStreaming Video - 2014
Iran's sensitive geographic position and its oil reserves have made it the object of foreign interest since the beginning of the 20th century. This penetrating documentary traces the impact of these factors on the past 100 years of Iran's political history, helping viewers understand why the country has had such a complicated relationship with the West. The program gives a particularly eye-opening account of Cold War-era maneuvers by the U.S.-the 1953 coup, the introduction of nuclear reactors under the "Atoms for Peace" program-and examines the backlash from traditional Islamists that culminated decades later in the 444-day hostage crisis.
