Posted on July 5, 2017


This month’s episode of See Hear was shown on BBC2 this morning, and is now available on iPlayer. Here’s the blurb:

Erika Levi meets some of the athletes hoping to win medals for Great Britain at the 2017 Deaflympics in Turkey. The games begin on 18 July in the city of Samsun on the Black Sea coast. There are thousands of athletes taking part but Great Britain are hopeful they can improve on their disappointing medal haul from four years ago.

Chef De Mission Christof Niklaus tells Erika how the preparations for the competition have been going.
