Signed programmes on the BBC
The BBC broadcasts two different types of TV programmes with signing in British Sign Language (BSL) for the deaf community: BSL sign-interpreted versions of mainstream BBC programmes in the Sign Zone; and programmes created specifically for sign-language users, such as See Hear, the magazine programme for the deaf community. Both types of programmes have been available online on BBC iPlayer since March 2008.
Note that CBeebies also broadcasts the Something Special TV programme, which is supported by Makaton signs and symbols, and is designed to be understood by children in the early stages of language development.
