Film Clip: In the Wrong Place

John Simpson does a news broadcast in response to the Islamabad Marriot Hotel bomb blast but is dissatisfied with its content and his location.

One of three clips shown here from Top Dogs: Adventures in War, Sea and Ice – Afghanistan, transmitted on BBC2 in 2009 in which John Simpson takes Sir Ranulph Fiennes and Sir Robin Knox-Johnston to Afghanistan to reveal the trials and joys of the war correspondent whilst he investigates live news stories.
