Iran’s nuclear program presents a threat to international stability. Yet successive American administrations-Republican and Democratic alike-have misread the intentions and actions of the Iranian regime.

How dangerous is a nuclear Iran, even if it never detonates a weapon? What are the guiding principles of the Iranian leadership? To what lengths would the regime go to carry out its agenda? How far have Iran’s leaders already gone to fund the world’s most powerful terrorist organizations? And why have American leaders failed to gain the upper hand in relations with Iran during the past 30 years?

In approximately 60 minutes, Iranium powerfully reports on the many aspects of the threat America and the world now faces using rarely-before seen footage of Iranian leaders, and interviews with 25 leading politicians, Iranian dissidents, and experts on: Middle East policy, terrorism, and nuclear proliferation.

  • Iranium documents the development of Iran’s nuclear threat, beginning with the Islamic Revolution of 1979 and the ideology installed by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khomeini.
  • Iranium tracks Iran’s use of terror as a tool of policy, beginning with the 444 day seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, through Iran’s insurgent actions in Iraq and Afghanistan.
  • Iranium details the brutal nature of the Iranian regime to its own citizens, and the Iranian people’s desire to rejoin the international community.
  • Iranium outlines the various scenarios the greater Middle East and the Western world may face should Iran cross the nuclear threshold.

“On the Record” host Greta Van Susteren hosts “Fox News Reporting: Americans Held Hostage in Iran” on Fox News Channel. This hour-long exclusive Fox News documentary commemorates the 30th anniversary of the Iranian hostage crisis.

On November 4, 1979, America had its first showdown with radical Islam when the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, Iran was stormed by students hoping to stage a three-day sit-in. Initially, the Islamist students’ intent was to protest America’s decision to allow the exiled Shah of Iran to enter the United States for medical treatment. Instead, the ordeal became 444 days of hostage hell for 52 Americans.

In this watershed moment in American history, Fox News talks to key players in the crisis and examines how President Jimmy Carter struggled to resolve the crisis in an election year. Among those interviewed include: Former Deputy Secretary of State Warren Christopher; Fox News contributor Bob Beckel, who was Deputy Assiatant to the President during the crisis; White House Chief of Staff James Baker. Several of the hostages, who were released as Ronald Reagan was sworn in as president in January 1981, also relive their frightening days in captivity.
