Sunday nights, 9:00 pm was the time in which Oshin was broadcast on Iranian TV. I was a 7-8 years old boy living in a small town (I am now 28), all the relatives that didn't have a color TV gathered in our home to watch Oshin (translated to Persian as "Years far from home"). The scenes still shine in my mind and the music would remain for years. The sorrowful story of a rural girl that battles with the violating life and poverty. Oshin was for some years an Icon for Iranian women. It is said that an Iranian woman was arrested by the Islamic regime just for naming Oshin as her idol instead of Zeinab (Daughter of an Islamic leader who is known symbol of toleration in Shiite). High influence of this serial, although may also be because of specific social conditions of Iranian Society, never repeated for any other foreign TV productions. 10 out of 10, for the artistic merits and for the great nostalgia.
