See Hear visits the Royal Academy for Deaf Education in Exeter. The school has long been synonymous with deaf cultural heritage and now, with plans in the pipeline for cutting-edge new premises, it's all set for to become a model for deaf schools of the future too. See Hear takes a look at the academy - past, present and future. And, as the way deaf children are taught in schools has changed over the years so to has the way British Sign Language has evolved. In the second of a four-part series the BSL story is picked up from the early 18th century onwards.
Also, Sport Relief Weekend is coming up, when people all over the UK will be taking part in a wide variety of sporting events to raise cash to help transform the lives of people both here and across the world. See Hear visits the Deaf Connections project in Glasgow to see how it has benefited from Sport Relief funding in the past.
