The Century: Events That Shaped the World is a 12-part ABC News production hosted by Peter Jennings that explores the many events and personalities that colored the 20th century. In The Evolution of Revolution: Live From Tehran, Jennings examines the Iranian hostage crisis that lasted for the final 444 days of the Carter administration, paving the way for the Reagan presidency. This program seeks to answer whether this act of terrorism was the result of a foreign policy aimed more at protecting an oil-dependent standard of living rather than the professed goal of spreading democracy.
