Author Carl Holmes, who's had support from various celebrities including Only Fools And Horses stars David Jason and Paul Barber, became hooked on hospital radio when he spent nearly four years in hospital after a boxing accident. He had to learn to live with paralysis and life on a ventilator. Carl told Andy Bonner about his experiences and talked about his frank autobiography which chronicles how he's managed to regain some independence in his life.
