'Guantanamo Guidebook' Brings Torture to TV

An upcoming British television special attempts to recreate alleged techniques used at the American prison camp in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. In The Guantanamo Guidebook, former American Delta Force interrogators subjected seven volunteers to sleep deprivation, sexual humiliation and intense questioning over the course of 60 hours. NPR's Madeleine Brand talks with Chris Guelff, who volunteered for the show.
