Excerpt from the BBC interview:

His voice breaking with emotion, he spoke of the moment his rescuers arrived.

"We had this sort of futon thing on the floor, and we were lying there, and suddenly we heard noise outside and then somebody calling out and then the breaking of glass and then up the stairs came these SAS gents," he said.

Norman Kember was held for 117 days

"It's unbelievable because it was so sudden and first of all, because they were British, they wanted to know if 'Mr Kember' was there, and I said, 'Yes' and then they said, because I was the person at that stage chained to the door, 'This is a bolt-cutter job,' so they went down and cut the padlock and released me."

Mr Kember said he "continues to thank" his rescuers.

"They were brave. I disagree with their profession, but it is ironic isn't it - you go as a peace activist and you are rescued by the SAS, which is perhaps the most violent of all the British forces.

A very interesting interview.

Nothing much to do with the SAS, but very interesting about his experience.

I call this the PB & J concept.

Pacifist on one side, Soldier on the other; hopefully with the same end goal.

Peace and security.

(Not to mention the Soldiers are the one they need when and theres a hostage on the line. > US At lest wont negoriate with a terro, assuming UK is the same.)

The 40 minute interview had very little about the SAS. It was mainly about his experience. It mentions the SAS for a couple of minutes. But it is centred around his experiences.
