  1. Alf, I am very thankful you posted this. Just watched the truely captivating documentary. I have to admit that I didn’t fully approve of the sword swallowing in his TED presentations before as it felt gimmicky and too much showing off to me.
    But now that I know the whole story and his background in being a doctor in Africa, the appreciation can only grow. I’ve already e-mailed svt.se as I’d like to buy this as a DVD or paid download because this will definitely find a larger audience beyond Sept 17th.
    It is rare that a TV station makes this stuff freely available outside their home country, which is also remarkable in its own right.
