"Modern warfare as I saw it in Iraq is not what people see on television." - Craig White, NBC News cameraman.
This very special program sets that flawed impression straight. BAGHDAD DIARY presents in unflinching and intimate detail the hard reality of modern warfare exactly as White saw it.
Combining footage White shot while embedded with the 3rd Infantry Division with videotaped diaries of Iraqis, this groundbreaking production offers multiple perspectives on the war currently raging in the Middle East.
White's incredible news footage was shot in the company of his friend and colleague, NBC correspondent David Bloom, who died while reporting from Iraq. Fadil Kadoom, a 39-year-old taxi driver, risked his life to film hundreds of hours of videotape documenting his family's experience during the American invasion. Barakat Jassem is an Iraqi translator and Fulbright Scholar studying in the United States whose only wish is to return home safely.
The tales of these three men, as told through the footage they filmed, weave a saga of struggle and survival. Heart-rending, breathtaking and informative, BAGHDAD DIARY is as true a chronicle of modern warfare - as experienced by civilians - as you can find on television.
