News & Views: Today on this 29th anniversary of the Iranian revolution NaV will devote most of the broadcast to coverage and analysis of the event. We will kick off with an in depth backgrounder on the events surrounding the revolution, as well as a host of international interviews with many who have intimate and balanced knowledge of the Revolution. Dariush Homayoon of the Constitutionalist Party of Iran, former editor of Ayndegan newspaper, and former Minister of Information under the Shah, will give a phoner interview to us from his home in Geneva during the 2nd hour of the show. Khosrow Akmal, the Shah's Ambassador to Australia and New Zealand, and former chief of protocol for the Imperial Iranian Court and current leader of the Iranian Constitutional Monarchists in Washington will join us. Former Empress of Iran, Farah Pahlavi and former President Bani-Sadr join us as well with their reflections on the Revolution. Iran’s first investment banks will start operating next month, part of Tehran’s strategy of opening new banking channels but also part of its effort to circumvent US restrictions on its financial sector. The three banks will also play a key role in Iran’s plans to step up aggressively on the privatization of national industries including steel, banking, shipping, airlines and telecommunications.
