Hands On Series 15 is drawing to its close, but don’t get too down, we’ve still got one more great episode for you this week – The Best Of Hands On! If you missed out on any of our brilliant episodes this series now’s your chance to catch up and see our best bits – from our Makeover Challenge in which Caroline and Ronan battle to create the perfect look for one lucky viewer, to Brigid O’Connor learning how to cook (with mixed results!); from a fascinating look into Deaf History and life at St Joseph’s School, to an insight to the emotional rollercoaster of getting a cochlear implant, we’ve got a huge range of interesting, informative and funny items to keep you glued to your seat.
Sarah Jane also goes behind the scenes and presents some hilarious out-takes from each programme – ever wondered what happens between shots or how long it can take a presenter to get their lines? Well, you’re about to find out!
We also have an update on the controversial issue of access for Deaf people to jury duty. Since we last discussed this topic our presenter, Senan Dunne, received a summons to serve at the Central Criminal Court. Though he was not empanelled in the end, the judge’s ruling on his ability to serve was a major breakthrough and may pave the way for Deaf people to finally see a change in legislation. We interview Senan to find out more.
Also, Hands On will have an ELECTION SPECIAL on Sunday 20th February on RTE1 where we will be asking politicians YOUR questions! We’ve got everything you need to help you make up your mind on who to vote for on February 25th! We will send more details in a couple of weeks!
