Earlier this year, Bees Nees teamed up with Matchlight to produce the hour long documentary – The Switch On.
Half a million profoundly deaf people across the world have had their hearing restored thanks to cochlear implantation, and the extraordinary clips of their cochlear implant being ‘switched on’ have become popular on the internet – shared and watched by millions.
