Sign Language

Charles Stirling investigates whether sign language works in the mirror.

Is sign language left or right handed? Can it be mirrored without losing its message? Charles Stirling seeks answers to these questions with the help of two volunteers.

Charles Stirling gave the 1992 CHRISTMAS LECTURES "Our world through the looking glass". This clip is from his first lecture "Man in the mirror".
