  • 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
  • The Emotional Impact of Interpreting
    Nikki and Yvonne are in the studio meeting with Daryl Jackson, a deaf interpreter who had to interpret for a close friend with serious illness. With little to no support available, is the emotional trauma of interpreting difficult situations causing interpreters to quit the profession and what can be done about it? Ali Hetherington, an experienced interpreter, believes the answer is professional supervision. We meet deaf actress Charly Arrowsmith in rehearsals for two new plays with the Royal Shakespeare Company. We travel up to Castleford Academy to see the work of a resource base staffed almost entirely by teachers, CSWs and instructors with BSL Level 3 or higher, led by deaf teacher of the deaf Kate Reed. We are joined in the studio by BBC Young Reporter of the Year finalist Jovita, who shares her experiences and her hopes for the future of deaf education.moreless
