Listen to Meet the guides Jamie and Harry:
“You may be thinking: A blind guide leading a walking tour, how’s that going to work? Well I’m not alone in this”.
Professor Jamie MacDonald our blind local historian guide meets his helper Harry Gooch.
From here, it’s downhill all the way (well apart from the bits that go uphill) for Jamie is about to follow the well-meaning but accident-prone Harry from one near-disaster to the next. Harry, you see, has been sentenced to community service after receiving an ASBO for tackling what he thought was a terrorist attack on Edinburgh Castle…it’s complicated, you have to hear it from Harry.
An ASBO, by the way, is a very British form of civil punishment designed to correct anti-social behaviour that does not warrant a criminal prosecution.
