Subject: [nfb-talk] BBC In Touch Program About Our National Convention

At the invitation of Tom Bickford, one of the guests at our Sligo Creek
Chapter picnic today was Gary O'Donoghue, one of three reporters in the 
Washington bureau of the BBC, who happens to be blind. His primary gig in 
Washington is reporting on politics, of which there is plenty.
BBC Radio 4 also runs a program called In Touch, aimed at an audience of 
blind people and others interested in our issues. Mr. O'Donoghue attended 
our convention, and on July 28, his coverage of the convention was aired. He

interviewed several people, including our own Yasmin Reyazuddin and Tom 
Bickford, as well as president Riccobono. I think this show's coverage of 
our convention was spot on. You can hear the program using a built-in 
player, or download an MP3 copy of it from


Let's go build the Federation!
