Go See: BBC See Hear Weekend 2016, 5th-6th November!

Posted on October 19, 2016

There’s a great weekend of film and sign language being planned in Bristol in just a few weeks time.

There’s a Q and A with the team behind the BBC4 documentary Life and Deaf, there’s a panel discussion on the future of Deaf television, and there’s lots more besides.

All the info can be seen on the website.

It says:

The BBC and See Hear invite you to celebrate all things related to sign language and the Deaf community in film and television in this series of screenings and workshops over one weekend at Watershed.

The BBC was the first broadcaster to create teletext subtitling and a dedicated programme for sign language users. That programme was See Hear, and BBC Bristol’s flagship programme is now celebrating its 35th birthday!

We’ll be bringing the history of the programme to life for a new generation and over the weekend there’s a little something for everyone; with Morph model-making workshops for kids and families, exciting short films, a look back at how the first ever episode of See Hear was made, as well as special previews of new feature films and documentaries, not to mention the museum of deaf television!

Tickets for all events are FREE and can be booked in advance (Please note that you need to pick up your ticket on the day at least 20 minutes before advertised start times). All screenings are subtitled, and feature sign language. All presentations and Q&A sessions will include live speech to text transcription and a sign language interpreter. All of our cinema auditoria are fitted with induction loop systems and are wheelchair accessible.
