Women banned from wearing make-up on Iranian television....

You mean they can wear make-up elsewhere???
Iranian women should no longer be allowed to wear make-up when they appear on state television, according to a senior Iranian executive cited by the reformist Etemad newspaper. "Make-up (worn) by women during television programmes is illegal and against Islamic Sharia law ... There should not be a single case," said the head of the state broadcaster IRIB Ezatollah Zarghami, during a conference of network directors.

Zarghami, a former member of the Revolutionary Guards, has been re-appointed by the country's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

He also stated that female guests should appear on TV shows "preferably" hosted by women.

I'm surprised they allow women on TV at all.

Yes, because the Koran explicitly states rules for television and other technologies that did not exist in Mo's day.
