Holidays

Episode 2 of 4

Duration:
15 minutes
First broadcast:
Monday 18 July 2011

In Blind Man's Bete Noire, Peter White explores some of the things which annoy him most about his blindness.
In the second programme Peter is joined by broadcaster and travel expert Simon Calder. They spend the Isle of Wight ferry crossing discussing the best type of holiday for Peter to enjoy independence, flexibility and action.

Simon suggests a cruise may well meet Peter's requirements and mentions that there are also tailored holidays for blind people. Peter talks to one such specialist company about the holidays they offer, providing blind travellers with a sighted guide, to enable them to go on holiday on their own.

Producer: Cheryl Gabriel.
