"Baghdad ER" is a multiple Emmy Award-winning documentary released by HBO on May 21, 2006. It shows the Iraq war from the perspective of a military hospital in Baghdad and by that, illustrates what war really means. It has some relatively disturbing scenes in it (e.g. amputations), therefore the army is officially warning that military personnel watching it could experience symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

After being given a Peabody Award, the show was featured in the April 13, 2007 broadcast of NPR's "Fresh Air". [ [ Ed Bradley, NPR, HBO among Peabody Award winners - ] ]
