[ video ] In this short ski clip, you get not only a glimpse of Iran shortly before the revolution, but what looks like the revolutionaries themselves, in Azadi Square, then called Shahyad. The look on their faces just about says it all.

Also before the revolution:

* The American Women's Club of Iran initiates the newcomer

* Penned anonymously in Shiraz, 1975: how to drive in Iran

* Clips from NIRT International, National Iranian Radio & Television

* Iranian TV Ads (1969-78)

* Two young artists are inspired by 1979.
