Andrea Begley who only has 10% vision, was crowned the winner of BBC1's The Voice competition on Saturday night. She speaks to Peter White about her success and how she handled aspects like dancing and interacting with the audience.

Red Szell who has retinitis pigmentosa, told In Touch earlier this year, he planned to climb the Old Man of Hoy sea stack. We asked him to keep an audio diary of his climb, and tonight we hear just how he did it.

And, how do you decide which books to read and what technology to use to read them? Peter White joins a meeting of the Newbury Library's Visually Impaired Reader's group, to discuss some of the challenges faced by visually impaired people who like to read.

Producer: Lee Kumutat
Editor: Andrew Smith.
