Wednesday, 13th of October, BBC2, 14.00
On today’s programme we look at the emotive and controversial research into potential cures for deafness. We highlight some of the latest developments and ask the crucial questions, is this really what the deaf community wants and could deafness eventually be eradicated?
We follow profoundly Deaf viewer Tomato Lichy as he puts these questions to a leading scientist in the field.
Also on the show, we attend a special awards ceremony at Wolverhampton University, where the Chairman of the British Deaf Association and former See Hear editor Terry Riley, receives his honorary degree for his services to the Deaf community.
If you would like to share your views on the topic of genetic research, or on any issues in today's programme, then please leave us your feedback. We'd really appreciate that.
And, please remember, next week's programme will go out on Thursday, 21st of October at 13.45. We apologize for the short notice, but please be assured that See Hear will be back in it's normal Wednesday slot at 13.00 from the 27th of October onwards.
See you then!
