Synopsis

This intriguing book by Manouchehr Bibiyan, producer and president of Los Angeles based JAAM-E-JAM Television Network, is a rare political document and a credible historical primary source on the history of modern Iran. Based on the many interviews of Mr. Manouchehr Bibiyan and his staff with Iranian public figures over the years, Secrets of the Iranian Revolution is a unique and rare glimpse behind the scenes of one of the most turbulent modern revolutions. Mr. Manouchehr Bibiyan, the producer and president of JAAM-E-JAM Television Network, continues to be a prominent, influential, active and permanent presence in the arenas of music, culture and politics as he has for the more than fifty-three years in Iran and the United States. He was born on November 22, 1933 in Tehran. After completing high school and higher education in Tehran and Tel Aviv, he soon contributed to the field of Journalism. Prior to the Iranian Revolution, Manouchehr Bibiyan was Iran’s biggest producer of Iranian music and for twenty-five years (1954-1979),he produced eighty percent of Iran’s music. During the Shah’s regime, Iran’s national radio and television produced about ten percent of Iran’s music. Therefore, throughout this period it primarily broadcast the music produced by Manouchehr Bibiyan’s music company, Apollon. As President of Apollon Music Company, he introduced the most successful and celebrated Iranian singers to the Iranian public. With the cooperation of young and talented songwriters and composers, Mr. Bibiyan introduced pop and jazz to Iranians, revolutionizing Iran’s music industry. During the Iranian Revolution and with the likelihood of the imminent establishment of an Islamic republic, Manouchehr Bibiyan left Iran and established residency in Los Angeles. In 1980, he founded Pars Video in orderto preserve Iranian music, language and culture outside Iran. A year later, in1981, in response to historic necessity, he founded JAAM-E-JAM Television. This medium was a bridge between the displaced Iranians in their first few years of exile and a link to the larger community in America. Within a few short years, JAAM-E-JAM Television was broadcasting its programs nationwide and currently it broadcasts worldwide via satellite. JAAM-E-JAM Television broadcasts a program entitled Tribun-e-Azaad (Open Forum) consisting of interviews conducted by the author, Manouchehr Bibiyan, and his staff with world leaders and political figures. Open Forum became a medium for recording, preserving and presenting the secrets of history. Both Iranian and world statespersons participated in the forum. For the first time in history, Iranian statespersons from the old regime of the Shah narrated the historical events and revealed the secrets of the causes and consequences of the Iranian Revolution for the hundreds of thousands of viewers of JAAM-E-JAM Television.
