A sketch show made fully in sign language (with subtitles for the sign-impaired). The show is written from a deaf perspective, with all the actors (aside from one) being profoundly deaf.

The characters include a deaf man who can't stop going to Wetherspoons, a spy who listens in on conversations using special glasses, and an officious policewoman who makes sure people are signing properly, fining them for their mistakes.

The programmes have been funded by the British Sign Language Broadcasting Trust.

The episodes can be watched on the BSL Zone website. Episode 1 and Episode 2
