I Want To Change The World

Meet Daniel, a Deaf teenager who wants to make the world a better place, with the introduction of a BSL GCSE and more!

Documentary.  As the only BSL user in a school of over 900 pupils, Daniel has a dream: to be able to take a GCSE in British Sign Language. He embarks on a journey to meet his Deaf campaigner heroes, including Dr Paddy Ladd, David Buxton and Jen Dodds. They give him campaign tips, which he puts to use in his own campaign, with a public demonstration at Trafalgar Square. It’s a race against time as his GCSEs are fast approaching - will a GCSE in BSL be ready in time for Daniel?  Filmed, produced and directed by Sebastian Cunliffe; a Drummer TV production for BSLBT.

  • Your film was fabulous. Sadly the government's reply shows their lack of understanding - a BSL GCSE would help hearing and deaf people communicate! (You Daniel would have no problem passing a BSL GCSE now!) They don't get it - but don't give up - they need to be helped to get it! Keep up the good work and you will help to make a change for the better - for society as a whole.

  • I think it's about time the school cirruculum reflects more the need to give the second most popular language (BSL) in the UK a say. This seems to be a chronic lack of understanding by this governent on the importance of introducing BSL as a GSCE option.

  • l am deaf and disabled and sign language bsl. I would encourage everyone to learn sign language so that it is easier for me and other deaf people to Communicate wherever we go. So much easier and would help more in a work situation too. Astrid

  • Daniel, that was a great film and you are a very inspiring young man. I wish you all the best. I am a hearing person and for sure, if there'd been sign language offered as a subject in my school, I would have taken it - I love languages. Now I'm learning it online, just started.
    Let me know if you have a petition that needs signing! Bst wishes,
    Ruth
