Invisible Wall, The (3 Parts)

Synopsis
Examines the discrimination and thoughtlessness faced by disabled people in everyday life, using hidden cameras and recorders to show some of the difficulties they encounter.
1: Looks at leisure activities in Bath, Manceaster, London and Cornwall to discover how difficult it is for disabled people to enjoy an evening out.
2: Looks at transport, interviewing a man whose family is forced to ride in the guard’s van of trains, the road users who are obliged to pay more for their motor insurance, and users of public transport in London.
3: Looks at education, interviewing a student who has had to give up her chosen course, a fitness instructor denied the chance to further his career, and a child denied mainstream education.
