Once Upon a Time in Iran (documentary)

2007 Channel 4 documentary about Iranian Shiism and the martyrdom culture the west first became aware of during the Iran Iraq war in the 1980's in which thousands of young men died while making massive human wave attacks to try and seize the holy city of Karbala in Iraq; this documentary tells the story Imam Hussein and follows a group of Iranian pilgrims visiting Karbala in modern day Iraq.

This appears to be a reedited rendering of a documentary we saw here in the US on PBS. I wonder which one was edited from which.
