Watch: See Hear on BBC2 today, with coverage of the Communication Support Bill and Big Brother (and an interview with our correspondent!)

Posted on October 23, 2013

Today, the BBC’s long-running TV programme aimed at the UK’s deaf community will be reporting on a range of stories that will be of interest to our readers.

For starters, it covers the Communication Support Bill that is due to be debated in Parliament on Friday. The programme had access to September’s negotiations in Westminster when a range of organisations agreed on its contents, and interviewed the key players, including Sir Malcolm Bruce.

This episode also meets Sam Evans, winner of Big Brother, and interviews our Big Brother correspondent Michelle Hedley, who covered the show for us from the beginning. Keep your eyes peeled for a glimpse of Limping Chicken’s coverage!

There’s also a report from the Edinburgh fringe, where the idea of sending all the UK’s signing community to the Orkney Islands was debated.

It’s a must watch for you Cluckers this week. See Hear is on BBC 2 at 10:30am today or you can watch it on iPlayer later.
