A 'Silent' episode of EastEnders tonight!

Wow, what do you think of this?  Tonight's episode of EastEnders at 8pm will feature 'limited audio, fractured sentences and subtitles to reflect Ben’s level of deafness and how he understands the world'.

This will make it very inaccessible for some viewers, but it will give others a brief glimpse into the issues faced by people with a hearing impairment.

The EastEnders team have worked with Deaf Journalist and Script Writer, Charlie Swinborne' on the episode's creation.

Will you be tuning in?
