Rabbi Hirshel Jaffe- BBC Telecast of My Special Eleven Day Mission to See the Iran Hostages
Forty years ago, the Iranian hostage crisis gripped the world, with details unfolding nightly on television. Desperate to get their message out, the hostage takers invited 50 ordinary Americans to visit Iran. For the Americans, this high-risk trip held the tantalizing possibility of securing the release of hostages.
Using archives of the visit and fresh interviews with former Iranian hostage takers in Iran and their American visitors, we hear about their hopes and misgivings at the time and their reflections 40 years later.
