The Making of Switch

BBC See Hear Weekend 2018

90 mins

Since its first appearance on See Hear’s 20th Anniversary Programme in 2001, Switch - the long running Deaf drama featuring a diverse cast of Deaf and hearing characters - has been fondly remembered by Deaf viewers.

Produced by David Horbury and directed by Louis Neethling with the support of BBC Drama, it was groundbreaking in its portrayal of Deaf and hearing people appearing side by side and launched the careers of many well known Deaf actors such as Matthew Gurney, Fiona Garfield, Paula Garfield and Daryl Jackson.

In this event, director Louis Neethling will introduce clips from the show and talk about how this pioneering series was made, as well as answering questions from the audience, and we'll be joined by actresses Fiona Garfield and Diana Martin.

The discussion will include live speech to text transcription and a sign language interpreter. All of our cinemas are fitted with induction loop systems.
