Josie Long presents a series of short documentaries about keeping quiet, being lost for words and complete silence.
From the crushing silence after a musician's mistake to the tense hush that surrounds two teenage boys as they hide inches from their headmaster in an oversized box - tales of attempts to keep quiet and the struggle to raise your voice.
