Frank Gardner swaps the news for disabled skiing
The BBC's security correspondent Frank Gardner, who became disabled after being involved in a gun attack in Saudi Arabia in 2004, has gone from the heat of the studio lights of the newsroom to the chill of the ski slopes.
He recently joined Operation Snow Warrior, a military winter training exercise with a difference. All the servicemen and women taking part are disabled and, like Frank, have returned to winter sports as part of their rehab, using equipment such as 'sit-skis'. This morning (Wednesday), Radio 4 broadcast a programme called Battling Back, and you can join Frank and the soldiers on the slopes by listening to the programme for the next seven days on the iPlayer. There's also an accompanying report and video on the BBC News website.
