Brazilian man with over Five million vinyl records

Zero Freitas bought his first record around fifty years ago. It was a collection of songs by the Brazilian superstar, Roberto Carlos. But it wouldn't be his last. Since then Zero has amassed what's thought to be the world's largest privately owned vinyl record collection - with over five million copies. As people around the world moved on to CDs and now Mp3s, Zero bought up their unwanted vinyl - sometimes in collections of hundreds of thousands. He pays for his records with money he earned from running his family's transport business in the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo. Outlook's Gibby Zobel went to visit Zero's warehouse.
