SEE HEAR: Wednesday 27th January 1pm BBC2

SH Line Producer | 15:16 UK time, Wednesday, 27 January 2010

Although he has had severe hearing impairment since he was born, 19 year old Luke Hollingsworth has not let it stop him pursuing a life-long ambition...from an early age he has dreamed of following in the moon-walking footsteps of his idol, the late Michael Jackson. A recent competition offered him the chance to do just that.  Dancing before a panel of experts - Jermaine Jackson and international choreographer Lavelle Smith Junior included - we follow Luke on his journey up against thousands of other hopefuls to see if he can 'Move like Michael Jackson'. 

 

Over the last ten years the way we listen to music has changed radically with MP3 players being the gadget of choice.  Around 20 million of us in the UK listen daily to music digitally on MP3 players and mobile phones.  Maggie Philbin finds out whether potential new EU legislation limiting the volume on MP3 players, in order to prevent damage to hearing, will be welcomed by consumers. 

 

We also catch up with the first leg of a pioneering exchange project between the UK and Nepal. It's the first of its kind to comprise solely Deaf volunteers. 'See Hear' looks at how all the volunteers are faring after living and working together over here for the first three months of the venture.  The volunteers share cultural experiences and work around the differences in their sign languages.  What does Preston have to offer that Kathmandu doesn't?
