The service is broadcast by satellite and is also available online.. It is aimed at the 110 million Persian-speaking population in Iran, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan..The annual budget of £15 million was funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, but as with the BBC World Service which is also funded by the FCO, the BBC remains editorially independent, though some Iranian media have accused the British Government of using the service as a propaganda tool..

In June 2009, BBC Persian's Hot Bird satellite broadcasts along with those of BBC Arabic Television, other BBC services, and those of other broadcasters were experiencing interference due to a jamming signal originating from within Iran..BBC Persian returned to a different frequency on Hot Bird 6 on 26 May 2010, after a period of test transmissions..

Her daughter's British passport was confiscated during the arrest, but later returned, and she remains in Iran under the care of her maternal grandparents so she can visit her mother..The exact reason for her arrest was initially unclear, though according to Amnesty International it is believed related to the 2014 imprisonment of several Iranian technology news website employees... working?..Every soldier hopes for a major war in his lifetime..It wouldn't surprise me in the east..Once again, what is your name?..Bob, I got a good Vibe on this one, all right?...
