Watch: Ashley Kendall presenting BBC Newsround in BSL, for Deaf Awareness week!

Posted on May 5, 2016

In a neat initiative for Deaf Awareness week, the BBC’s news programme for kids, Newsround, has been presented in BSL by Deaf presenter Ashley Kendall, also known to younger viewers for his appearances on BSL poetry show Magic Hands.

It’d be great to see this initiative extended into regular weekly, or preferably, daily episodes to benefit Deaf kids out there.
