Today we pick up after the 1953 coup and follow the story through to the 1979 Islamic Revolution – which ended up changing the world we all live in. We learn about the Ayatollah Khomeini, where he came from and how he rose to power. We also look at how the Shah made it so easy for the 1979 Islamic Revolution to occur. And last but not least, we look at how the revolution developed in a way that the whole world was surprised – although they probably should not have been.
