A journey from Iran – video

A BBC Learning Zone animation telling a positive story about asylum seekers coming to the UK from Iran.

When Navid’s father’s life was in danger, he fled their home in Iran and came to the UK. A couple of years later, Navid and his mother also left, and travelled a long journey to England, mostly overland. He describes why he had to leave, his long journey over here, and how he has adjusted to life in the UK. Now 16, Navid describes the difficult journey him and his mother took when he was five, as well as how it felt adjusting to life in the UK.

First broadcast on the Learning Zone on BBC2 in June 2012 as part of the programme Seeking Refuge.
