We also join teenagers at the Ear Foundation in Nottingham as they put their TV production skills into practice at a special film workshop led by actor Colin Wells. Drawing on what Colin has learnt from his own daughter the event aims to encourage youngsters, who come together from all over the UK, to share their experiences of wearing cochlear implants.

And we meet a young Deaf woman who has a promising career in cakes ahead of her!
