Reza Pahlavi on BBC Radio

Reza Pahlavi interviewed by the BBC World radio in English

As part of a special week of programming about Iran on BBC World Service, this week's guest on The Interview is the son of the last Shah of Iran, [Crown Prince] Reza Pahlavi.

Born into a life of privilege and heir to one of the most powerful thrones in the world, Reza Pahlavi had his life torn apart by the Islamic revolution of 1979 and his family hounded into exile.

Since then he's based himself in the United States and dedicated his life to campaigning for democracy in Iran.

And as he tells Owen Bennett-Jones he thinks that right now the fractious opposition in exile is finally uniting behind the common cause of democracy and human rights.

Reza Pahlavi is reluctant to talk about the past and says he is looking to the future but he admits that his best memories are from his childhood back in Iran."

It is indeed good for people to see that RP can stand any type of media scrutiny as well.

This Bennett-Jones guy is antagonistic and this is more of an interrogation than an interview.
Reza Pahlavi does a good job.
