Peter White with news and information for the blind and partially sighted.

We test a selection of new gismos from the Sight Village exhibition of technology for visually-impaired people. Our gadget guru, Ian Macrae, takes a closer look at a labelling 'pen' which promises to help you sort your peas from your peaches, among other things.

Also we go behind the microphone with the blind and partially-sighted radio students at Redstone FM when they go live on air for the very first time. Reporter Johnny Cassidy visits the Redhill radio station which pledged to offer these opportunities as part of its licence application to Ofcom.
