St. Dunstan's is one of the most prestigious names in welfare for the blind. But now their name is changing - to be replaced by Blind Veterans UK. Andrew Jones of Blind Veterans UK explains the reasons for the name change and former St Dunstaner Terry Bullingham - blinded by an Argentine Air Strike during the Falklands War 30 years ago - also gives his verdict.

As the Digital TV Switchover enters its final stages, Wilf White of the BBC's Digital Switchover Helpline explains how he is making sure no blind or visually impaired person gets left behind when the switchover from Analogue to Digital TV takes place. The London Switchover begins on 4th April, followed by East Meridian, Tyne Tees and then Northern Ireland in October. Everyone is affected by the switchover but, if you have Sky, cable or freesat you need do nothing. If you have a Freeview box, you'll need to re-tune it and if you currently only have analogue TV (ie just the 5 original terrestrial channels) you'll need to buy new equipment.
