Going Slowly

Episode 4 of 4

Duration:
15 minutes
First broadcast:
Monday 01 August 2011

In the final programme of the series, Peter White explores his bete noire of Going Slowly with record-breaking Steve Cunningham ("the fastest blind man on the planet") about why sighted people try to slow him down.

Comedian Nick Hancock explains to Peter the joys of fishing but he remains unconvinced about the benefits of sitting still for a long time, doing apparently nothing.

Visually-impaired BBC News correspondent Gary O' Donoghue also comments.

Peter finally experiences ultimate freedom by running full pelt along a Northumbrian beach.

Producer: Cheryl Gabriel.
