MY INTERVIEW ON BBC WORLD SERVICE’S ‘OUTLOOK’

In 2003, I was a Christmas visitor to Bam in southeastern Iran.  On Boxing Day a magnitude 6.5 earthquake hit the city.  The quake destroyed 90% of the town and eventually led to the tragic deaths of over 26,000 Iranians.  I was staying at a local guesthouse which was levelled to the ground by the quake.  I awoke to find myself in the rubble.  Over the following thirty hours, my best friend and I went on to rescue at least seven further survivors with our bare hands.  

LISTEN AT 23.30 MINUTES to my interview with Mathew Bannister of BBC World Service’s ‘Outlook’ about the event.

Yours,
