Hands On takes over Causey Farm, where Caroline Worthington and Ronan Dunne challenge Brigid O'Connor and Robert Young to see how they cope with some simple farmyard tasks for a day. Who will win the Hands On Farm Challenge? Place your bets now!
Take 5- Ramon Woolfe
Eddie Redmond is back after the Christmas break with his very popular chat show, Take 5! Today's guest is the award winner director Ramon Woolfe. Eddie probes Ramon about the secrets of his success and finds out how Ramon went from being a presenter on See Hear to a director for many programmes, including Hands On! We also hear of how Ramon pulled through his battle with colon cancer and more about his campaign to raise awareness within the Deaf community.
How to complain using the Equality Acts
Deaf people often find they don't have the same access as hearing people - imagine going to a doctor's appointment to find that an interpreter has not been booked- it is enough to make anyone's blood boil! Instead of going home and complaining about it, why not make a new year's resolution to take a stand and make a formal complaint - the law is on your side! Caroline McGrotty explains the Equality Act and how you can go about making an official complaint about unfair treatment.
For advice and support contact the following organisations and they will support you:
