What’s it like to be from a country under the global media spotlight? How does it feel to be told that you are part of the Axis of Evil or even that you must “unclench your fist”. This article is by an Iranian who helped with the translation of the recent BBC documentary series, Iran And The West, which explored the role of Iran in global politics over the last 30 years. Here Bahareh explains what it is like to see the world watching and judging your country through the media – and what it felt like to be part of a programme that sought to tell the wider story.
