At 8pm this Sunday, I will be appearing on Channel 4 in ‘From Russia to Iran: Crossing the Wild Frontier’, travelling with Levison Wood through my birthplace Iran. Its been one hell of an adventure travelling and filming through some of the remote parts of Iran, and I hope that this programme will help change current perceptions of Iran’s political climate.
In other news, I’ve been incredibly busy with some great stuff lately. My book ‘Kapp to Cape’ has made it to the US and Canada, and it is now available in all good bookshops and online. Details of book launch events throughout North America will be announced shortly.
My new TV series ‘Transamazonica’ (which was premiered by Fox) has also made it to Canada and will be broadcast on CBC in December. I’m very excited by this – it is only the second time that a series of mine has made it to a terrestrial channel (the first time was when ‘Kapp to Cape’ was broadcast by YLE, Finland National Television).
