Nine years ago, Nicholas White got stuck in a lift. For 41 hours.

The CCTV recording of his ordeal was put online two weeks ago as part of a New Yorker article on the lives of elevators. The Youtube version alone now has almost 3 million views, there are numerous parodies and White has become something of an internet celebrity.

We'll try and speak to him for Saturday's programme.

Here's a long (13 minutes) version of the interview we did today. Nick mentions his website, which can be found at 41hours.com.
