A history of disability advocacy

In 2010 Sarah Barton travelled on a Churchill Fellowship to England and America and recorded more than 25 interviews with surviving figures from the disability rights movement. Her documentary is still in production but in this session Sarah shares some of the highlights of her journey and tells stories about issues, characters and ideas that she discovered along the way.
