The second blind son born to sighted parents, Peter White's education took place before the days of integrated schooling. In this biography, he desribes the peculiar regimes of the special boarding schools he attended, his university life and his career in radio broadcasting.
Peter White was the second blind son born to sighted parents just after the war. His education took place before the days of integrated schooling for all (for which he is extremely grateful) and he describes with honesty and humour the peculiar regimes of the special boarding schools he attended. Accepted into university he found the world outside more difficult to adapt to but, with a combination of despair and determination, forced his way into radio broadcasting and is now a senior correspondent with the BBC. He portrays his experiences without a trace of sentimentality but with humour and passion.
