The Tommy Edison Experience is a unique show which aired on TelevisionFour from 2011 to 2016. It starred the famous blind YouTuber, Tommy Edison, who is known for his humorous and informative videos about his experiences as a blind person. The show also featured Ben Churchill, a filmmaker and editor, and Andrew Johnson, a radio personality.

The show was divided into several segments, each tackling a different topic related to blindness and visual impairment. One of the most popular segments was called "Tommy Talks," in which Tommy answered questions from viewers about his life as a blind person. This segment was particularly effective in breaking down myths and misconceptions about blindness, and it allowed viewers to understand what it is like to live without sight.

Another popular segment was called "Blind Film Critic," in which Tommy reviewed movies without being able to see them. He would listen to the dialogue and sound effects and offer his opinions on the plot, characters, and other aspects of the movie. This segment was not only entertaining, but it was also insightful as it showed how the experience of watching a movie can be different for someone who is blind.

The show also featured segments on technology, travel, and even cooking. In the technology segment, Tommy tested out various devices and gadgets designed for the visually impaired, and in the travel segment, he visited different locations and shared his experiences of navigating new places without sight. The cooking segment was particularly interesting as it showed how someone who is blind can prepare a meal independently, using techniques and gadgets adapted for their needs.

Throughout the show, Tommy's main goal was to educate and entertain viewers, and to promote understanding and acceptance of blindness and visual impairment. His humor and positivity were infectious, and his insights were invaluable in breaking down barriers and challenging misconceptions.

The show was also innovative in its use of sound design and editing. As Tommy was unable to see the visuals, the show relied heavily on sound to convey information and create a sense of atmosphere. This required careful planning and execution, and the show's producers did an excellent job of creating a rich and immersive audio experience.

Overall, The Tommy Edison Experience was a groundbreaking show that challenged perceptions and celebrated diversity. It was a valuable resource for anyone interested in learning more about blindness and visual impairment, and it was an inspiring example of how someone who is blind can live a full and rewarding life. Tommy, Ben, and Andrew were a fantastic team, and their unique perspectives and talents made the show a joy to watch.
