We have a thread for music but how about one for videos in Persian?

Here's a cool video about the history of the Tehrani accent:

I find it a very good idea :D Although this level is too advanced for me, because I only have basic notions. I could try to find and post also some easier videos. But no matter the level, all videos would be very interesting for practicing the listening.

These Iran-e Aziz videos are great. Here's one about falafel in Abadan, a good way to hear the Abadani accent.

I've been secretly using LangMedia videos, specifically the first one here and here with the transcripts. The transcript for the Iranian one is pretty unwieldy, though. :P LangMedia also has exactly one video AFAICT with a bit of Tajik, namely the second one here. I've also been using GLOSS, but I'm not sure whether they have any videos for (any variety of) Persian or not.
