Martin appears on Paul O´ Grady show
Paul O’Grady was very genuinely impressed and amazed by Martin’s story. The show also played clips from Big river man film and Paul showed the book The Man Who Swam the Amazon. Martin did really well. It was very dramatic viewing when he showed the scar on his back!
