Last of six programmes about men and women who live in Britain because they

face persecution at home.

Iranians

After the overthrow of the Shah, many Iranians living abroad were afraid to go back

home in case they fell foul of the Islamic courts. And since President Bani-Sadr lost

the struggle for power, the numbers seeking asylum abroad have grown. Should

they be allowed to stay? How safe is it for 'westernised' Iranians to go back? Robert

Rowe talks to Iranian exiles caught between fear of the mullahs and the

uncertainties of our asylum policy.
