Thursday 9 February 2006 20:00-20:30 (Radio 4 FM)


From an old colonial hotel on the banks of the Shatt al Arab River, the Desert Rats go about the business of reclaiming Basra City from years of devastation. Stephen Grey has been given exclusive access to their inner circles, and for the last several months has been following their work in southern Iraq. He reports from the frontline - where being bricked and mortared is a way of life.
