Discovery, Koppel Examine Iran


Discovery Channel will debut two-hour world-premiere special Koppel on Discovery: Iran - The Most Dangerous Nation Sunday, Nov. 19 at 9 p.m. (EST/PST).

Koppel was allowed three weeks of rare access to Iran, and he “talks to Iranians in all parts of the country about the harsh rhetoric of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and about his determination to pursue nuclear technology,” the network said.

Discovery added that the Koppel team was the last group of journalists allowed into the country before the Iranian government stopped granting journalist visas.
