Watch: See Hear: Hidden Nation, five documentaries in five days, starting TODAY at 8am on BBC2

Posted on October 31, 2016



Make sure you don’t miss See Hear: Hidden Nation,  a new immersive documentary series uncovering the lives of Deaf people around the country.

There are five documentaries in five days, and it starts TODAY, on BBC2 at 8am, and also on iPlayer. It runs every morning this week.

Everyone has a story to tell, and Deaf people are no different. Whether it’s a Deaf drag queen coming to terms with a traumatic event in their past; a talented Deaf musician playing Glastonbury; a young Deaf man with a rare genetic condition that limits his growth; an elderly bowler trying to keep the Deaf community together; or a young Deaf and autistic climber scaling the Matterhorn – these are people who come from all walks of life and every corner of the UK. The one thing they all have in common is that they are deaf or hard-of-hearing. 
 
Produced in British Sign Language with voiceover and subtitles, See Hear: Hidden Nation runs every morning at 8am on BBC TWO from Monday 31st October through to Friday 4th November. Watch – and open a window into a previously unseen world. 
Series Producer William Mager said:
“This is an ambitious documentary strand, very different from the usual See Hear programmes. Our cameras have captured some incredibly emotional moments, and highlighted the diversity and richness of the UK’s deaf community.”
Executive Producer Roger Farrant said:
“The characters we meet in this series are people who are rarely seen or heard on television. They are the Hidden Nation and we’re proud to finally bring their stories out into the open.”
