444 days : the Iran Hostage crisis( Visual )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the words of the U.S. Embassy Communications Officer, being held hostage "was like being raped." Drawing on archival footage-including previously unreleased film from Iran-and candid interviews with the American hostages and their Iranian captors, this riveting program presents a balanced look at the harrowing details of the 14-month standoff that brought radical Islam to world prominence and forever altered America's attitude towards the Middle East. Additional interviews with religious leaders, top-level politicians, military personnel, and others flesh out a story of uncertainty, frustration, and hardship for all involved, which was only resolved with the belated release of the hostages in 1981. (1 hour 43 minutes)
