Hearing, balance and tinnitus on Drivetime

Do the size of your ears affect your balance? That was the question from a listener that sparked the BBC to track down a hearing expert to find out more! Prof David Baguley was interviewed live on air on 6 February for BBC Radio 2's Drivetime show with Simon Mayo. He spoke about hearing and discussed the role of the vestibular labyrinth and the brain in balance. David also highlighted that this week is Tinnitus Week, which is focussing on tinnitus in children - an underecognised and underesearched area.

You can listen to David's interview on BBC Radio iPlayer until 8 March at: www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b09q3j3v. The interview starts 19.00 minutes in and finishes at 24.30.
