Listen in pop-out player

Victoria Oruwari, Liz Hargest and Kate Risdon are all professional musicians. Earlier this month, they took part in a course run by the RNIB to learn some of the techniques for conducting a choir. They then tried out their newly acquired skills on the London Youth Choir at the Wigmore Hall. We brought them together for a post-mortem after the course.

James King has retinitis pigmentosa and runs his own business building garden rooms in peoples' homes. Reporter Tom Walker went to meet James on site, to find out how he manages to stay afloat in such a visual and aesthetic industry.
