Episode Summary

Deaf Clubs in Decline
Julian and Yvonne are in the studio introducing two investigations of two deaf centres – Lancashire Deaf Society and Walsall Deaf People's Centre. Both closed within weeks of one another leaving local deaf people without a place to go, without jobs, and without vital support. We are joined in the studio by the University of Sussex's John Walker to discuss whether the closure of deaf clubs is a warning sign, or a natural change linked to the rise of technology and social media. Yvonne visits pastry chef Sam Widnall at the exclusive Pale Hall Hotel in Wales to talk about his time on Bake Off: The Professionals. And we are in a radio studio as Reg Cobb of the Gloucestershire Deaf Association attempts to host his first ever radio show - in sign language!moreless
