This one-off travel documentary takes us to Turkey with a remarkable man: a man who visited over 100 countries, despite being blind since 18.

Amar Latif has been blind for 25 years, but despite this he has taken up skydiving and skiing as he has travelled across the globe. In this trip, he is accompanied by the rather risk-adverse comedian Sara Pascoe, who learns how important Latif’s other scenes are, but perhaps more importantly acts as Latif’s guide, describing the sights in great detail in a way that allows him to “see” again.

Travelling Blind is on BBC Two at 20.00.
