With reluctance, we must stop sending out our programmes on memory sticks until restrictions are lifted. There has been a surge in the pandemic locally, many of our volunteers are in the high risk category, and we have a duty to protect them. We will continue to record the programmes from our homes as we have done throughout the pandemic.

Programmes can be listened to on our website ("Latest Edition" page), via the British Wireless for the Blind (BWBF) App on smartphones, and Alexa. We look forward to better days ahead when we can reinstate full service.

CATN Edition 1139

Thursday, 19 December 2019

Normally we would compile this edition on 26th December, but that's Boxing Day. Instead we have given our scheduled producer and recording engineer, along with our presenter and readers, the opportunity to spend the day with family and friends by recording this edition on 19th December. This edition is shorter than usual, but followed by a Review of 2019 conatining some of the stories and features we included throughout the year.
