Chat show (2016). The second series of Close Up, the BSL Zone's in-depth interviews with well-known Deaf people.  This is the second part of a two part programme.  Gerry Hughes tells Tessa Padden about his belief that if one door opens for a Deaf person, it clears a way for other Deaf people to follow.  A sailor and teacher for many years, Gerry explains how he felt about sailing around the world alone, what he thinks of Deaf education and what he wants to do next. Produced by Bob Duncan and Dawn Marshall at Becoming Visible.
