Decadence and Downfall – The Shah Of Iran’s Ultimate Party
Sunday, 21.00, BBC4
Here’s a great example of hubris on an international scale in this fascinating sounding film, which looks back to 1971 when the Shah of Iran, the self-styled “King of Kings”, held the most incredibly lavish party the world has ever seen, spending billions of pounds in wining and dining dozens of Kings, Queens and Presidents. The aim was to cement Iran in general, and the Shah in particular, as a major player on the world stage, but in the event all this vulgar display of wealth did was piss off the Iranian public and put into motion opposition which led to a revolution. What a shame.
