Looking back, you wonder why/how it got shown on live TV. This was the BBC (I remember it very well interrupting our snooker), and so the order to allow it shown must've come from very high up (Thatcher perhaps?). And, if so, it was incredibly brave. Imagine if the whole thing had been a complete flop, which was quite possible.The SAS storming the Iranian Embassy is one of my first memories. I distinctly remember watching the news flash although I would only have been 3 and a half years old at the time.
