Apparently two of them were on the team that won a British Deaf Quiz a few years ago, i have been in email contact with Daphne Fowler in the past and have just emailed her to tell her how much ds enjoyed watching it!!
tell him to get his application for cbbc shows in, lottie, on you and yours they were saying that they are actively trying to 'normalise' (iykwim?) the sight of people with disabilities on tv quizzes etc.
It was great to hear the captain on the radio - not so long since you would have had stations saying 'what, a deaf person on the radio, no-one will understand...'
And the presenter interviewing them happens to be blind. Once heard him telling a funny story about walking with a friend and falling down a flight of steps - when he protested, saying, 'why didn't you warn me', his friend said, oops, thing is I don't think of you as blind...
Sign of progress, the same way a female newsreader interviewing a female correspondent always gives me a little thrill. When I was very little I remember a big fuss about Angela Rippon 'because women don't have the authority to read the news'.
