SIMON WESTON CBE 
My Life. My Story. In My Words

Mere words alone seem so inadequate when referring to SIMON WESTON.
 
He was a soldier serving in the British Army at the time of the Falklands War in 1982 when two Argentine planes bombed RFA Sir Galahad and turned the ship into an inferno. Simon survived but suffered burns to 46% of his body, yet, he would say he was lucky as he lost many of his comrades that day. 

Since that fateful day he has become one of the most recognised faces of the conflict, and in this show he discusses his experiences with his close friend David FitzGerald from the BBC in conversation delivered with footage from the conflict and followed by an audience Q&A session.
 
SIMON WESTON is a truly remarkable man who despite all he has suffered has emerged as one of these countries most inspirational people. His story has highs and lows, laughter and tears, and on that journey he has subsequently met Royalty, the pilot who dropped the bomb and even Harry Patch the last survivor of WW1.
