The Silk Road Episode 3: Iran

Date Posted: 09/01/2016

So…on we go with filming the third and final episode of The Silk Road for BBC4. China, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan all done and dusted, with the glory of the architecture of Soviet bus shelters still firmly imprinted on my mind. Now it’s the final leg – Iran, Turkey, Venice.

First we fly to Shiraz, travel to Persepolis, then Yazd, Meybod, Esfahan, Kashan and Tehran…and then on to Istanbul. Follow me on Twitter @shipwreck_sam for regular nonsense and photos.
