Cherie talks disability

A pointer to a potentially interesting television programme coming up this week, though you'll need Sky Digital (if you're in the UK) to see it. Al Jazeera English, the 24-hour English language news and current affairs channel broadcasting from the Middle East, will be featuring an interview with the Prime Minister's wife, Cherie Blair, as she visits the region in her role as patron of the disability charity Scope. The interview will be shown as part of Everywoman, the channel's magazine show for women, and Cherie will be speaking in particular about her support for the United Nations' international convention to improve rights for disabled people and end discrimination against them.

Whatever you think of Cherie Booth - and there's no denying that she has been a controversial figure at times - it could be interesting to hear the views on disability of someone who has such close access to the Prime Minister that she can chat about the topic over the cornflakes and eggy soldiers in the morning.

Everywoman is being shown at various times on Tuesday 1, Wednesday 2 and Thursday 3 May (visit the programme page for all the details). The channel itself is available on Sky Digital channel 514, and full details of how to receive it across the rest of Europe can be found here.
