Unsung lives in the soundless world - Great Deaf Britons competition. 

Apart from some Arsenal fans with long memories, most people probably instantly recognise only one of the names of the five finalists in the Great Deaf Britons vote over on the BBC 'See Hear' webpage.

Even if you are part of the hearing world, its worth having a look at why Cliff Bastin, Francis Makenzie (MP), Harriet Martineau, Joshua Reynolds and Francis Maginn all made contributions to a richer and world and showed that wonky ears need not be a barrier to a full and rich life.

Our own Emma Nicholson is backing Francis Makenzie - see the videoclip linked from the 'See Hear' page.

I don't know who my vote is going to at this time...
