All I could do was run

Filmaker and foreign correspondant Olly Lambert on the emotional toil his latest work camped in with the Syrian Rebels has taken on him:

I felt a terrible expression contort my face: I was pulling back my lower jaw and cheeks, my top teeth were bared, and my eyes were wide. I was still filming, but was aware that my face had contorted into a look of horror. The weirdest part was that I was relieved to be horrified, to be human among all this inhumanity, and not just some robot with a video camera.

 I really do urge you to take the time and read this extraordinary piece of writing about what could only be described as hell on Earth.

In addition, PBS has posted about 30 minutes of footage from his upcoming PBS/ BBC documentary.
