SEE HEAR - Wednesday 23rd September, 1pm BBC TWO
In this week's programme See Hear is going undercover!
We're investigating the poor acoustics in some of Britain's most popular restaurant chains. The latest fashion for minimalist interior design, open kitches, canteen-style tables and hard surfaces makes for a seriously stressful experience for many people with hearing impairment.
Louise Simmonds, a Hard of Hearing lady, has had many nights out spoiled by loud and echoey surroundings. She decided enough was enough, and accompanied by audiologist Mark Scutchings they set out to measure how bad the problem really is.
Using secret cameras and concealed noise monitors, Louise and Mark consumed a lot of pizza and noodles to bring us their findings. The proof of the pudding was in the results, so join us on Wednesday as we visit some of Britain's noisiest restaurant chains, and find out what they intend to do about it...
