John Hull was born sighted and underwent the slow inexorable loss of vision, until he became totally blind in his mid-forties. He takes us inside the world of blindness, where "a hand suddenly grabs you. A voice addresses you. There is no anticipation or preparation." This program presents a moving portrait of the man, and this world beyond ordinary experience.
