Rageh inside Iran

Just watched a brilliant film by Rageh Omaar visiting Tehran, you can really feel his sense of humanity coming across, he's written somewhere that he made the film wanting to bear witness to the lives of people in Iran hoping that the West will empathise with them rather than hurl them into the pit of hell as they have done in Iraq.

Rageh Omaar is up there for me now with Robert Fisk, Gary Younge, Craig Murray et al: men that I wish I could be - if I was fully myself, yes I would have the confidence and the focus and strength of character and intelligence and cultural sensitivity of those guys.
