More subtitling for BBC Parliament
Following representations from parliamentarians and the RNID, the BBC is increasing the number of hours of subtitling on its BBC Parliament channel from 450 hours to 810 hours per year.
The half-hour review programme, 'The Record', which is shown twice daily, already carries constant on-screen subtitling, but now the most important of the events in Parliament will be shown in a subtitled version.
BBC Parliament is available on Freeview, satellite and cable and shows all the work of the House of Commons live, and also replays the sessions of the House of Lords the following day. The channel has a monthly audience of approximately 1 million viewers.
