' See when I used to come in here on Sundays, it didn't look like nothing to me. It was nothing here. Mummy, it's great to see.'
Nineteen-year-old Marie Queen had been blind from birth. When she was three, a Glasgow eye surgeon promised her that one day he'd try to give her sight. Almost exactly a year ago he kept that promise and Marie's prayers were answered. She could see. This film captures the excitement of her departure from hospital and her first reaction to the world we tend to take for granted. And with the years of blindness behind her, Marie talks, for the first time, about the hurt and the isolation she felt as a blind teenager. Reporter Fran Morrison
