Documentary (2020).  Richard was the first paramedic to respond to the Westminster terrorist attack in 2017, but he considers being in hospital with COVID-19 to be far more scary.  In this programme, Richard and other members of the Deaf community recall the fear that gripped Britain as the pandemic arrived and spread rapidly across the country.  We meet a bride-to-be, an actor, a deafblind woman, a new mother and a NHS worker, who all recall their lives during Summer 2020.  Produced and directed by Cathy Heffernan; a Drummer TV production for BSLBT.
