For Sky, Laurence Lee moved onto the town of Nahariya on the Israeli-Lebanon border this afternoon, with Colin Brazier and Emma Hurd covering the situation from Jerusalem.



Ben Brown again co-presented the BBC Ten O'Clock News from Beirut, while Gavin Esler was in Jerusalem for Newsnight.

Why people go to Jerusalem is beyond me, its not the front line is it? They would get more action standing in slough.

Colin Brazier is now on the Israeli-Lebanon border with a smoke filled backdrop.

Sky's coverage is absolutely superb, I find FOX's coverage cheesy and the BBC is also very good.



Great choice of people to locate in the Middle East, Colin was a former Mid-East correspondent wasn't he?

Almost 2 weeks after his World News Tonight programme being axed, James is back in the studio!



Great to see, as his knowledge of world affairs is unbelievably deep, really good too see!

Keith Graves on Broadcasting House.



News of bombings in Beirut evokes memories of the civil war. From 1975 to 1990 most can recall the hi-jackings, massacres, and daily assassinations, and of course the hostage crises. For BH we tune the dial back through time, with archive reports and the thoughts of two foreign correspondents who reported from the civil war for the BBC. Keith Graves, who's now with Sky, and Gerald Butt, who now edits the Middle East Economic Survey.
