End section of a That’s Incredible! Episode that aired in 1983. I’m struck by the style. I remember feeling like I’d been on a journey with them and they always had a soft closing like this one, bringing in updates from old shows, letters from people, lots of thank you. And: while I can’t find the episode, they DO show a preview for ANOTHER blind child who is a pianist, a 5 year old, ivan fetch, who is now a blind computer programmer / musician today.
