Produced by Mind the Gap films, the 15th series of Hands On promises to be entertaining, enthralling, explorative and educative.
This week we meet three brave volunteers, nominated by Deaf family and friends to take on the ISL challenge; can they transform themselves from novices to proficient ISL users in the space of 14 weeks?! We'll follow their progress throughout the series.
This series we bring you a new strand, Hands On: Rewind, where we return to some of Hands On's most popular and controversial items, for example we'll tackle the Irish Government about promises they made about Irish Sign Language recognition and follow up our shocking report which highlighted the difficulties experienced by Deaf people trying to contact the emergency services. We'll return to these topics and discover what progress has been made since these issues were last highlighted by Hands On.
This week on Hands On:Rewind we return to the landmark legal case which saw Deaf woman Joan Clarke, challenge the decision to exclude her from Jury Service on the grounds of her Deafness. We explore the implications of this case on the Irish legal system and ask if the verdict actually made any difference to the campaign for Deaf people to be allowed to serve on a Jury.
One lucky Deaf viewer is given the chance to have a total makeover - but presenters Caroline Worthington and Ronan Dunne must compete to offer them the most stylish look! Will our makeover victim put themselves completely at the mercy of our enthusiastic presenters and come away with a glam new look?
The first episode of a 10 episode series will be broadcast on Sunday 14th November at 12.05pm RTÉ1 so be sure not to miss it!!!
