' Night fell quickly and it brought out those dancing sparks, the fireflies. In summer, hammocks were slung on the verandah, and I slept out of doors. The garden was full of rustling, alarming noises. But overhead the black velvet subtropical sky was ablaze with stars ...' Isabel Winthrope talks about her childhood in Argentina.

The story of the newly blind
Written and narrated by Stephen Grenfell
The majority of the blind men and women in Britain lost their sight in adult life. George Markham is one of these—one of the newly blind who now faces the rest of his life without the use of that major and incomparable sense upon which he relied as a child and as a man. This is his story and perhaps in part-for no man is an island-the story of all the newly blind.
