Inside Iran

Home of the mad mullahs, a President you can frighten your children with and nuclear weapons on the drawing board, if not actually in their bunkers: Iran sends shivers down Washington spines better than any other member of the 'Axis of Evil'.

The NI looks at Iran's rich history and culture, at human rights in a theocratic state and, above all, at what life is really like for ordinary Iranians.
