    Default Schools programme with Victoria Wood

    Can anyone remember a tv series for school children starring Victoria Wood ? I think she played Wordwitch but I'm not sure. All I can remember is that it was made for the hard of hearing and she did quite a bit of sign language and there was a male presenter as well. Any info would be grateful !

    I think it was called Rainbows End

    Slightly worried I may have jumped in to soon with this one. But member danny gave me the lead mentioning a character called Supersign here https://forums.doyouremember.co.uk/t...ight=wordwitch

    Does Supersign ring any bells Steve?

    (My first thoughts were Look and Read but that was Wordy of course, and Words and Pictures also came to mind, but no sign of wordwitch in either

    Victoria Wood apperead along side Derek Griffiths in a Yorkshire Television schools programme for hearing-impaired children called insight which ran between 1980/83

    Loking at this and am not convinced that Supersign was played by Derek Griffiths - in my memory it was a tall, skinny white bloke in his thirties with mousey blond hair (and a bit of complexion trouble)

    Maybe things are fading as I journey through life..................

    I was thinking the same thing about it not being Derek Griffiths unless it was an earlier show or something.

    Returning years later, here is a short clip from insight, it shows ITV clock for a while but then, at about the one minute 34 seconds mark, it shows ( as a cartoon and then in the flesh) SuperSign...he is clearly not Derek Griffiths

    I've been trying to get a still image of SuperSign of this clip but I ain't got the tech skills.
    I thought it might be easier to use on reverse image apps to try and get the actors name
