20 minutes
First broadcast:
Tuesday 06 September 2011

Who's eligible and what are the restrictions on concessionary fares for disabled people ? Peter White talks to David Sindall from the Association of Train Operating Companies and Nick Lester Corporate Director for London Councils about the Freedom Pass and the Disabled Person's Railcard

In the run-up to the 50th Anniversary of the programme, we trawl the In Touch archive and hear from Paul and Martin Sutton, then aged 10, as they took a trip to Broxbourne Zoo, hoping to stroke a lion cub.

Plus details on how you can join in the Anniversary celebrations and be part of the audience for a special programme which will celebrate the achievements of blind and partially sighted people being recorded in the Radio Theatre in London on the 4th October..
