ZDNet.co.uk Scoops BBC on Techie Survival Training

I like to work with BBC World News on in the background over here in Budapest. Working on your own is fine but you get used to noises of a busy(ish) editorial office so its nice to have some buzz and chatter on in the background - which is exactly what the BBC excels at.

The downside is that the Beeb - although not as bad as CNN for this - tends to loop the same reports over and over again.

The latest one that keeps grabbing my attention is a report on UN technical staff being trained to cope with the dangers of working in war zones and disaster areas. You can see the report here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/8000947.stm

However, aside from the paratroopers and automatic weapons, what really caught my attention about the report is that I actually covered the story for ZDNet.co.uk last year. TV normally gets the pick of these kind of stories so its nice to know we got their first on this one!
