Sensing the Old Firm atmosphere – BBC

8th March 2007 • Dave

Ian Hamilton is a journalist for the BBC in Scotland. I met him a couple of years ago when I was producing a piece about accessible GPS in Glasgow. I am delighted Ian has written this piece for the BBC News site.

Quite a few blind people go to football matches in the UK, I used to be one of them before I got superstitious about Liverpool playing better when I was not there.

Anyway, for me the sound of the crowd, the sound of the commentary, the sound of the players shouting to each other is a vital part of the football going experience. So it was fascinating to learn about the experience of Clarke Stevens who is deaf blind.

Good stuff, keep it coming Ian.
