Today at 60: How attitudes to disabilities have changed

We look back at how the UK's attitude to disability has changed over the last 60 years

To mark 60 years of Today we are looking back at how Britain has changed in that time. One big change is the way disability is viewed and treated.

Radio 4’s Peter White, who was born blind, and Times columnist Melanie Reid, who was paralysed in 2010 after a horse riding accident, discuss how perceptions and treatment of disabled people have changed.
