Disabled heroes and public transport accessibility

Disabled heroes and public transport accessibility

Following an opinion poll of heroes which was topped by three disabled people, Paul Carter and Victoria Wright discuss what lies behind the concept of heroic disabled people. They also discuss the accessibility of public transport and the collective consciousness of disabled people. Paul and Victoria are joined by the activist Zara Todd, who has a keen interest in transport issues, actor, presenter and composer of The Download’s theme music Mik Scarlet, and Julie Howell, who has campaigned for better access to technology and who is now a public speaking trainer.
