Sara Pascoe changes tack to become a pair of travel eyes in Travelling Blind

If anything will make you forget all about taking the perfect Instagram holiday shot and simply experience the moment instead, then this extraordinary one-off documentary is it.

Blind adventurer Amar Latif is teaming up with comedian Sara Pascoe (above with Amar), who has agreed to be his ‘travel eyes’ as they tour Turkey.

But it’s not just Amar who benefits from Sara’s detailed descriptions of the incredible places they visit.

Thanks to Amar, Sara also gets to properly listen to the intense sound of millions of bees at a famous Turkish beehive, experience the intoxicating smells of Istanbul’s Grand Bazaar and have a unique multisensory travel experience.
