What is Insight Radio?

Posted July 31, 2015 - Accessibility

Insight Radio is Europe’s first radio station for the blind and partially sighted, and is funded primarily by the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB on using technology) and local councils. All of Insight Radio’s programmes are presented by blind or partially sighted people. Broadcasts take place 24 hours a day, seven days a week on Freeview 730 – you can find this channel on your Freeview TV or recorder.

Programming begins with a news driven show as morning papers are read to the audience. Across the day there’s a mix of music and features of particular interest to the blind and partially sighted community. Every afternoon you can listen to a radio drama, the latest magazines and the Talking Book show. There are also specialist programmes week nights at 7pm with a wide range of music from the 60’s to present day popular chart hits.
