An Irishman Abroad: Episode 190

Not only is Gavan Hennigan the first extreme environment athlete to appear in the series, by trade, he is also a deep-sea saturation diver and holds the record for the fastest solo competitor to ever complete the 5,000km Atlantic rowing race. This week, Gavan speaks openly about his incredible journey from being a drug addict on the run (7:00) to working 200 metres below sea level (25:00) and being able to survive the jaw-dropping realities of surviving 50 days alone at sea (52:00).
