Give Up Tomorrow was broadcast on PBS as part of the award winning series POV during their 25th Anniversary Season.
So my dog and I are setting off for Spain to trek the Camino de Santiago for Paco. We will walk 356 miles (573km), which is the exact distance that Paco Larrañaga was from the scene of the alleged crime on the 16th July 1997. The trek should take about 30 days. Paco has served nearly 15 years in prisons in both the Philippines and Spain for a crime he had no part in.
