Holly Maniatty

“There is nothing wrong with your television. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are now controlling the transmission. We control the horizontal and the vertical. We can deluge you with a thousand channels, or expand one single image to crystal clarity... and beyond..." —The Control Voice, The Outer Limits (1962)

Or do we treat inclusivity as an add-on? Join a panel of experts to debate this topic as we ask the question - how can we ensure that those with disabilities don’t get left on the outer limits of entertainment?
