British Sign Language Broadcasting Trust

The British Sign Language Broadcasting Trust (BSLBT) commissions TV programmes made in British Sign Language, and distributes them on Film4, Together TV and Sky Video on Demand as well as on its own app and website. Established in 2008 to offer an alternative way for commercial broadcasters to meet their regulatory requirements to provide sign language on their channels, we became a charity in 2012. Today, we cover both drama and factual programming, including comedy, wildlife, cooking, children’s, and magazine shows, and our vision is that we ‘reach every BSL user with more BSL programmes that they love to watch.’ Our work is fully funded by more than 70 television channels which subscribe to us from commercial broadcasters both large and small, and we have ambitious plans to increase the range and depth of our output over the next three years.
