  • The Delivery of Medical News; Audio Described World Cup Commentary; Enhanced Smart Meters
    A few weeks back, Pauline Mottram told In Touch about the way she was dealt life changing medical news; she felt it was given to her in an extremely insensitive way. We get the hospital's response and hear about a twist to her story. We also hear from Rowena Thomas-Breese who, thirty years prior to Pauline, experienced the same when being told she'd lose her vision and in the same part of the world. We talk to Alan March Sport about how they are providing audio described commentary for this year's World Cup in Qatar. It's a free service and anyone with a smart phone can access it from home. Alan March is the company director and he provides more details, along with Pardeep Gill who used the service whilst in a World Cup stadium in Qatar. And our reporter Fern Lulham tells us about a new way that blind and partially sighted people can keep on top of how much they are spending on their energy bills; with an accessible smart meter. Presenter: Peter White Producer: Beth Hemmings Production Coordinator: Paul Holloway Website image description: Peter White sits smiling in the centre of the image, wearing a dark green jumper. Above Peter's head is the BBC logo (three individual white squares house each of the three letters). Bottom centre and overlaying the image are the words "In Touch" and the Radio 4 logo (the word Radio in a bold white font, with the number 4 inside a white circle). The background is a bright mid-blue with two rectangles angled diagonally to the right. Both are behind Peter, one of a darker blue and the other is a lighter blue.

  • What You're Entitled To; Access to BBC Sounds
    Following on from last week's discussion about whether you can prepare for sight loss, we've been asked to provide further information about the type of services you are entitled to. Simon Labbett is a rehab officer and Chair of the Rehab Workers Professional Network and he provides details of changes that can be made in the kitchen, what you should be asking for and from whom. If you own an older internet radio streaming device, you may have heard a recent announcement from the BBC stating that it will no longer be streaming on select devices, as of mid-2023. We investigate why this is and what can be done about it. Presenter: Peter White Producer: Beth Hemmings Production Coordinator: Paul Holloway Website image description: Peter White sits smiling in the centre of the image. He is wearing a dark green jumper with the collar of a check shirt peeking through at the top. Above Peter's head is the BBC logo, across Peter's chest reads "In Touch" and beneath that is the Radio 4 logo. The background is a series of squares that are different shades of blue.

  • Can You Prepare for Blindness?
    Getting a diagnosis that your sight will deteriorate or eventually be gone entirely, can be life changing news. But can you prepare for it? We brought together three people who are different stages along the sight loss path. Pauline Mottram received the diagnosis that she will definitely eventually go blind only a few days ago, and so we invite Amit Patel, who ten years ago went blind overnight and Marcia Beynon, who has a progressive condition and is yet to lose more of her vision, to offer some tips and guidance on this life changing event. They all tackle the question: can you really prepare for blindness?

  • Premier Inn guide dog refusal, Inaccessible cancer treatment information
    On bonfire night Angharad Paget-Jones, her boyfriend and guide dog, Tudor, attempted to stay at a Premier Inn hotel. Subsequently the staff at the hotel did not believe that Tudor was a real guide dog and they were asked to leave. Angharad provides details of how the situation unfolded and what she is planning to do about it. Anna Tylor is the Chair of the RNIB and is partially sighted. She reached out to us upon continuously receiving inaccessible information regarding her breast cancer treatment. Anna explains the problems she's been having and the faults of the NHS under The Accessible Information Standard, which have been in place since 2016. And, at this time of Remembrance, we hear from an ex-Navy veteran who has received some very good service following on from her glaucoma diagnosis and sight deterioration.

  • England's First National Clinical Director for Eye Care; The UK's First Blind and Black Female Barrister
    We hear from two women who are both celebrating firsts and both aiming to make a difference. Louisa Wickham is a consultant ophthalmologist and medical director at Moorfields Eye Hospital but in September, she added to her titles by being appointed as England's very first National Clinical Director for Eye Care. We invited her onto the program to explain what her ambitions are for her new role and how she plans to tackle the current problems facing eye care services; patient backlogs, long waiting times and preventable permanent vision loss. Jessikah Inaba is believed to be the UK's first blind and black female barrister. She studied for her law degrees in braille at London's University of Law and, in the last few weeks, has been inducted to the bar. She tells us about this momentous moment, about the barriers she faced getting there and about her goals for her future career in law.
