Bill Cresswell kindly transcribed this video clip from the BBC website. Jump to HERE for the transcription and video.

Bryan Adams held a photographic exhibition to raise awareness about hearing loss, showcasing photos of celebrities. I thought it (almost) funny that he was keen to raise awareness, as is the BBC, but I couldn’t even follow the video clip as there were no subtitles. There wasn’t even a little interpreter in the corner of the screen to interpret for sign language users. Oh, the irony …
