This week on program 446 of New Horizons, we hear from Lee Kumutat, an Australian who is currently living in the UK, working as a radio producer, presenter and journalist. Hear about her move, and some of the differences between the UK and Australia, particularly in regard to transport, and the difference in attitudes to blind people.
