Twelve-year old Brynj­ar Karl Birg­is­son, an autistic boy who has constructed a 6 metre long model of the Titanic out of Lego cubes and was featured here on mbl.is news, was filmed by the Discovery channel a couple of days ago. "It really surprised me," said Brynjar's mother, Bjarney. "A lady from Discovery just called us up and asked us if we were up to it. I suppose she saw the story online." 

Brynjar Karl's story and interview will be shown on the Discovery chanel in the US in around two weeks time.  His mother says he's over the moon about the visit. "It's his favourite TV channel."
