Actually sean, there is no law saying tv must be described, there are just
literally 6 rather dedicated people at the audio description office who are
keen on what they are doing.
They frequently have to hit film and tv producers over the head, and do
ridiculous things like record one description for release in cinema and a
different one for dvd release because of copywrite, ---- oh, and then of
course the cinemas themselves aren't actually great at putting the audio
described versions of the film on sinse they say it will destract others
(though sinse you only here the audio description while wearing wireless
headphones, ---- I don't know where they get this from).
Beware the grue!
