I dialled up to London on the ISDN yesterday to do an interview for one of the million BBC outlets to find Test Match Special coming back down the line.

Looking out across a deserted downtown Beirut, Israeli missiles exploding a few miles away, while listen to Blowers rhapsodising about cake during the first Test with Pakistan was one of the more surreal experiences of my journalistic career.

Hi there.. just curious but do you think its a good idea to a) be in a hotel with a missle launcher beside it and b) to be letting everyone including the Irsaeli military know about it?
