  • Brilliant film.  Would love the BBC to make a range of documentaries like these and broadcast them in prime time - not only deafness, but all societal sub-groups/cultures. 
     
    The more the public are exposed the more they will understand about difference being not only acceptable, but also the contribution and richness sub culture groups can provide.  
     
    I belive the key to political correctnes and inclusion is education and eradication of exclusion - knowedge leading to societal enrichment.

  • With deaf students in our mainstream secondary school's Deaf cebtre's BSL session, we watched Found in the UK; it was shown via my work laptop into a large SmartBoard.
    The quality of the filming - cinematically professional at close range - with Found in the UK's stories, interwoven so skillfully, was stunning. 
    Those elements caused those young deaf students to watch quietly and intensely for a full half hour.
    Colleagues could not believe it!!!! 
    For once the small classroom with that particular group,  normally short attention-span, boisterious and distracting, was a scene of quiet, serious concentration.
    Thanks BSLBT!!!
    We eagerly look forward to more 'Found' programmes concerning younger deaf people!

  • Great stories shared and it has brought in many memories of those who came into the UK that I met. Beautifully done, I hope to see more - maybe - children of deaf perents or hearing parent of deaf children, did they found and accept the culture and identity or completely rejected. just love it and want more!

  • Wow it was very interesting n inspirational. I can relate to some of the stories as am profoundly deaf myself, n know how hard it is to be involved in hearing group discussions...communication in the hearing world can be frustrating. Emotional when Ahmed n his sister talked of his struggles but am glad everyone was successful n happy in the end. Deaf I.d and access is so important. Worthwhile programme, thank you for showing us ☺
