This week on Talking Vision, we replay a reading and an interview from H.E. Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove when he visited Vision Australia Radio in Kooyong. Sir Peter said: “I became aware that there was a station for the print handicapped in Canberra and thought what a logical and sensible thing to do so, I wandered over and asked if they would mind if I did a couple of volunteer reading sessions.”
Also on the program, Cathy Lambert from the Australian Paralympic Committee on an upcoming classification opportunity and we pay tribute to Yankunytjatjara elder and activist Yami Lester who passed away in July. Mr Lester suffered vision impairment after being blinded by a nuclear test bomb that blew though his homelands in the far north of South Australia during the 1950s.
