    Through Deaf Eyes

    Through Deaf Eyes | PBS

    PBS Previews | Through Deaf Eyes

    I got this information through a friend of mine and thought I'd share it with you all to have a see.

    I recall, there was a "Through Deaf Eyes" tour back in 2001 that was hosted by University of Kentucky. I had went there and saw a lot of exhibitions that was related to the Deaf History. There were so many informations that was so shortly absorbed into.

    It'll be interesting to see what PBS has to air in 2 hours.

    I'm looking forward to this. I have to admit I laughed a little when I saw the program description from the network, something about "...the history of the hearing impaired." Duh! (Granted, they did also use the term "deaf" to describe the filmmakers.)

    Through Deaf Eyes

    I set my DVR to record Through Deaf Eyes. PBS said it was going to air at night but I have it recording at 9:00 a.m. I don't know if this is the same every where, but in Waco, it is coming on at nine in the morning. It is also on the 23rd here. I am excited to see it. I will be watching to see what everyone has to say about it afterwards.

    So far, I'm enjoying it, I wish I could have recorded it though. It's amazing to learn more about the deaf culture.
    And learn a few new signs along with that :)

    We watched the program. Very interesting. If you missed it, or you want to see it again, or show it to other people, you can buy the DVD or tape from PBS.org.

    PBS will broadcast it again on later dates.

    For the schedule, go to pbs.org, then click on "Through Deaf Eyes" > "About the Film" > "Broadcast schedule" > type in your ZIP code > Next > pick your station > Next


    Banjo, thanks for the Amazon link. That's cheaper than the PBS store.
