Forgot those "is it Rio?" ads, or whatever has been used to market Beirut, this is the original and unequalled take of Neckermann on our city. Yes "it's like Beirut" back when the city was bubbling with champagne and underneath a whole society was bubbling to reach the war - for let us not forget that the jet setting excesses contributed to the overall souring of the mood. But that was reading the events in 20/20 hindsight... So enjoy this clip, a reminder of what once was - or perhaps never have been.
