Norman Kember answers his critics and talks exclusively about his survival in the most desperate of situations.
For 117 days he endured the ordeal of being a kidnap victim in Iraq; then he returned home to find himself accused of being insufficiently grateful to his SAS rescuers.

But now in his first broadcast interview the peace activist Norman Kember tells his own story.

In a specially extended edition of Taking A Stand he answers his critics and talks exclusively to Fergal Keane about survival in the most desperate of situations.

He speaks about his kidnappers, about his American fellow captive who was murdered and about the rescue effort which freed him.

And in a moving testimony Norman Kember speaks about the emotional cost for his family.
