SEE HEAR: Wednesday 16th December 1pm BBC TWO

SH Line Producer | 18:00 UK time, Tuesday, 15 December 2009

This week See Hear meets Laura, a young Deaf woman campaigning very loudly against violence against women.  After a harrowing personal experience, she took up drumming and became the only Deaf woman in a female Glaswegian drumming band.  We join Laura and her band as they take to the streets of London for the "Reclaim the Night" march.

Also, with Christmas round the corner, See Hear sizes up the best gadgets and gizmos to give to your Deaf or Hard of Hearing loved ones on your Christmas present list.  Keep reading our blog for more information!

Radha and Memnos meet a champion deaf ice-skater before going into the rink to try their luck at learning to figure-skate.  It's safe to say that Torvill and Dean have nothing to worry about...
