Bothies, Rail passenger assistance, Choose what you pay

Bothies: the beautiful places where you can stay for free. It's fifty years since a charity was set up to maintain basic shelters in remote parts of Britain. We spend the night at one in Kielder Forest in Northumberland and head to the Isle of Skye where the charity's first new-build bothy is about to open.

Passengers who need help getting on and off trains can book assistance in advance. But how reliable is the service?

As the Halle Orchestra becomes the latest outfit to let audiences choose what they pay we assess the success of similar schemes.
