See Hear, Series 33 Episode 32 of 32

Duration: 29 minutes

See Hear travels to Italy. Memnos Costi is in the beautiful city of Rome investigating recent research that classified 250 different gestures used by hearing Italians every day. Does the everyday use of gesture in Italy mean that it is a more deaf-friendly country than most? Or does their refusal to recognise Italian Sign Language create barriers for the deaf community?

Plus a look back at the groundbreaking work done by Moray House in Scotland with their research into British Sign Language.
