Dorothy Hamilton was the first blind woman in the southern hemosphere to obtain a Music degree, she worked as a music teacher at an all-girls school in Melbourne, raised four children and set up a Braille Music Camp (which in 2015 celebrated its 30th year).
The first episode of Stories Of You captures the story of Dorothy Hamilton. Her life, her personal journey.
The documentary also features Garry Stinchcombe, who worked with Dorothy for 20 years as a teacher. Garry is totally blind himself and recounts what it has been like to know and work with her.
