Signs of the Times – Stephen Fry, Radio 4

If you haven’t listened to this yet, it is definitely worth half an hour of your time! Stephen Fry examines the linguistics, history and culture of British Sign Language.

The programme includes interviews with Professor Bencie Woll and Dr Kate Rowley from UCL, and Dr Adam Schembri from The University of Birmingham. (Dot Sign Language were delighted that Dr Schembri gave a lecture to our Level 4 and 6 students this year.)

Fascinating and a must if you are studying BSL.
