Can we see out from inside a black hole?

Jon  asked the Naked Scientists:

   I listened to your podcast with interest this week. 

One speaker said  that once you cross the event horizon of a black hole, you can no longer see out of the black hole.  I believe he got it wrong.  Observers from outside the event horizon can no longer see you once you cross the event horizon, but you can certainly see out.  In fact, enormous amounts of light (and particles) will come crashing down on you.

Where does the truth lie? Can we see  out of the black hole?

What do you think?
