RAGEH OMAAR: The face of the BBC during the bombing of Baghdad, baby-faced Omaar, 40, became internationally famous and was dubbed the "Scud Stud" by the red-tops. But he was never the adrenalin-junkie war correspondent that some imagined and, as a devoted family man, resisted any attempts by the BBC to style him as such. Critical of Western media organisations' coverage of the aftermath of the war, the Somali-born journalist broke from the corporation because he "wanted to be free". He wrote a book called Only Half of Me on the experiences of British Muslims and then, in 2006, joined the news channel Al Jazeera English, where he presents and sometimes produces documentaries from around the world, most notably reporting last year from the siege of the Red Mosque in Islamabad. He has just revisited the country that made his name for a documentary, Back to Iraq, to be shown on Saturday on Al Jazeera English.
