Queen and the Coup, The 1x47

On the first anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign, she had no idea she was about to be deployed in a secret plot to topple Iran’s democratic leader in favor of an all-powerful Shah. Planned by MI6 and executed by the CIA, the coup would destroy relations between Iran and the West to this very day. The truth was hidden even from the Queen herself. Using newly declassified secret documents, The Queen and the Coup unravels this incredible story for the first time.
