Are any of you watching this?

This has to be one of the best documentaries of the past year, its about journalists (BBC) going into Iraq and how they are attacked in the north by friendly fire from a F/A-18.

Its good how they show the real images of war, this is unsanitised proof, a great effort on the part of the BBC.

Watch here: (its in the WATCH/LISTEN bar)

In the line of fire
In the line of fire - with John

Simpson will be broadcast on BBC One on Sunday, 9 November, 2003 at 21:00 GMT.

When BBC world affairs editor John Simpson and his team set out to northern Iraq it was to report on the looming war against Saddam Hussein.

What none of them knew was that in only a few weeks time they would find themselves at the centre of the most lethal recorded friendly fire incident of the war.

While filming at a cross-roads in northern Iraq on April 6, a US Navy jet launched a bomb into a crowd of US and Kurdish soldiers who the BBC team were accompanying.

The bomb killed at least 16 people, including a member of the BBC team. 45 were injured.
