A lot of the Western World is focused on the conflict in Syria, but our next guest says we should also be looking at the Iran-Saudi tension, in the Middle East. Simon Henderson is the Baker fellow and director of the Gulf and Energy Policy Program at The Washington Institute, specialising in energy matters and the conservative Arab states of the Persian Gulf.

He's a former Financial Times and BBC journalist, and is in New Zealand speaking with MPs, academics and policy makers.
