CORONA VIRUS LOCKDOWN
All cinemas, theatres and galleries are temporarily closed under the current lockdown. Events scheduled for April to July 2020 are therefore withdrawn from this site.
Artlink has opened a new web site at www.investigatecreate.co.uk.
2019-20 Visual Impairment Programme.
I have been greatly helped by Clive Miller of RNIB who produces a day by day listing for all terrestrial channels.
The link to his listing, which is much more accessible than mine for the partially sighted, has been revised,
as follows: TV Help Audio Description. Clive has now produced new listings of ALL the Audio described programs you can get on a SKY digibox. I strongly recommend a visit to the site.
The details are on the TV listings page.
Don't forget to check whether your area can receive Freeview before spending any money! (mine can't). Go to the Freeview web site.
And if you can't get Freeview directly, you can get it by satellite with a Sky subscription.
