As he's done with previous programs on Israel, Egypt, and Eastern Turkey, Rick Steves takes us beyond Europe to a place that's rich with history...and mystery. Visiting Tehran, Shariz, Persepolis, and a small village, we'll get a rare present-day look at of some of civilization's most important historical sites, and a sense of Iran's 21st century culture. From architecture and art to faith and everyday living, "Iran, Yesterday And Today" offers a rare, candid, and humanizing look at a great if perplexing nation.
