Wonderful-life

George H. W. Bush has recorded visual description of “It’s a Wonderful Life” for a simulcast that will air on the SAP channel for the visually impaired when NBC broadcasts the film at 8 p.m. Friday.

The broadcast is part of a fundraising effort by RP International to save the Van Nuys, Calif.-based School for The Blind.

On Christmas Day, the fundraising effort will then culminate with “The Eyes of Christmas,” a 30-minute program airing at 6 a.m. on Ion. Celine Dion, Garth Brooks, Reba McIntyre, Sandra Bullock, Tom Hanks, Nicole Kidman, Bob Costas and Natalie Cole are among those who have supported the program.

Here’s a PSA for the Bush-enhanced broadcast of “Wonderful Life”:
