It seems incredible that I

It seems incredible that I can sit here in the comfort of my safe, warm and peaceful home, and watch live video with sound from Baghdad.
It’s 11.20pm on a Sunday evening in the Iraqi capital city. It seems very quiet.
UPDATE: 11.35pm, and the sound is filled with the noise of gunfire and distant explosions. I’ve spotted a few flashes in the sky, probably anti-aircraft fire. It is so strange to be able to watch and hear this unfolding from such a distance.
FURTHER UPDATE: the transmission has been interrupted. The BBC website warns that the webcast may be intermittent, which is barely surprising.
