Transcript from ‘A National Disgrace’ podcast.

Chris – I will hold my hand up and say when I first saw that footage, because of the power of the media, it really just seems like, ‘Oh my God, this is British soldiers behaving badly. You know, what are they doing oh lads, you’re letting us down. When I watched your documentary again, I just felt the way it had been completely spun and yes, all of the backstory and the context was stripped out to make it look like you were the biggest, you know what on the planet.

Martin – What was it all for? I’ve spent the last ten years with therapists trying to figure out who I am. You’re always constantly looking back and reviewing. Through ‘Diary of a disgraced soldier’, I couldn’t have made that film any better, it’s just the untouched frustration of what what I’ve been through.
