This week Talking Vision we present a special edition featuring the first episode of the new Vision Australia Radio program Studio 1!
The first episode Studio 1 - Vision Australia Radio’s brand new show that takes a look at life in Australia from a low vision and blind point of view.
This week presenter Matthew Layton takes a look at the bushfire crisis from a low-vision perspective by travelling to Orbost in rural Victoria to talk to Tina Kresojevic, who tells us what it’s like to face a sixty foot wall of flame when you can’t see it coming.
The show also features a panel discussion that talks about preparing for and recovering from a bushfire from both a practical and an emotional perspective.
Next week’s show seeks to answer the question that most people living with low vision and blindness fin it so hard to answer…
“How much can you see?”
