Blindness Footage

On 7th May 2014 an audience gathered in the Science Museum’s Directors’ Suite for a panel discussion on Blindness. Due to ill health and work commitments scheduled speakers John Hull, James Spinney and Peter Middleton could unfortunately not make it. However, James and Peter’s film about John Hull Notes on Blindness was shown in their absence. Tom Espiner also stepped in at the last moment in complete the line-up. Tom’s show Going Dark, which recounts the story of a man going blind, can be seen below along with the talks given by Colin Blakemore and Ophelia Deroy on the night.
