Disability rights barrister Catherine Casserley talks to Mani Djazmi about what visually impaired people's rights are when they are booking holidays, at home and abroad. She also tells us about travel insurance: Firstly, taking out travel insurance, how much do we have to disclose; and should we automatically expect to be charged more? And when making a claim: how much does visual impairment affect the outcome?

Listener John Gardner from Blackpool tells us his good news: he has had his Employment Support Allowance reinstated and has some advice for other claimants who feel they have not had a fair decision.

And we hear from world-renowned sitarist Baluji Shrivastav on his involvement in the multi-national Inner-vision orchestra which is made up of musicians who are all visually impaired.
