A drama documentary on the history of deaf education and culture, using sign language. The first drama documentary made in sign language. Traces the history of deaf education and culture through the last 200 years. Nine out of ten deaf people are virtually illiterate at the time they leave school. The programme examines how and why this has happened, and traces the progress of deaf education from the introduction of sign language 200 years ago, through the rise of oral education and its resulting impact on the deaf community.
