Hearing...But Not As You Know It
A touching documentary about St John's student Helen Willis, who is totally deaf following a meningitis infection at the age of two. She was one of the first people in the UK to receive a cochlear implant, allowing her to hear the world around her - albeit through impoverished sounds. Now she is flourishing at St John's and, despite difficulties in everyday tasks, she hopes to continue her studies and specialise in researching the science of hearing.
