The talk of the toon

Evocative shots of the Newcastle townscape cut across shots of teenagers communicating in British Sign Language. It's a striking start to the impressive video Connexions Tyne and Wear. Connexions is a nationwide service offering advice to the young on education, sex, work, training, health and housing. The video shows how the service operates, with particular reference to work with the deaf. We see how a personal adviser can help turn apparent problems about careers, holidays and transport into real opportunities by timely discussion. This 20-minute video is free for educational and related organisations in the Tyne amp; Wear area. Email: with name, organisation and address and details. Local website: The national Connexions freephone helpline is on 08000 150 850.
