BFBS Radio Sitrep
Sitrep is a unique current affairs radio programme produced by the British Forces News team with expert analysis of Defence and Foreign Affairs as our agenda. Presented by Kate Gerbeau and featuring our Forces News Defence Analyst Christopher Lee, Sitrep is the only place on radio where you'll find a comprehensive look back at the week's most significant events in Defence.
Sitrep May 28th 2009 British troops have pulled out of Iraq. Was it all worth it? And after Iraq, what does the rest of the world think of us? Aliens from a colonial time machine? American poodles? Or...the professionals who got it right and didn't outstay their welcome? How others see us ... And would we do it ever again? That's this week's special edition of Sitrep with Christopher Lee and guests.

Oh, and do you know why sailors say aye aye....?
