" Science is organized common sense where many a beautiful theory was killed by an ugly fact". - Thomas Huxley
The recent Iranian elections were mired in controversy and accusations of corruption. Early in August around 100 so called "opposition leaders" appeared in a Tehran courtroom, in what has been described as a Stalinist show trial. They had been accused of formenting a "Velvet Revolution". This program focuses on one of those accused, the Canadian Journalist and film-maker Maziar Bahari.
Joining Fari and Neil to discuss Maziar's current plight, and his life and career as a journalist, are the film-maker Simon Ardizzone, who collaborated as editor on a number of Maziar's films, writer Malu Halasa, co-editor with Maziar of the book Transit Tehran, And Little Atom's own Padraig Reidy, News Editor of Index on Censorship.
