Signed TV programs and films

Theres a film I want to record on C4 tonight but I notice its "signed", which means there'll be somebody to the right of the picture providing sign language for the deaf and ruining the film. I've come across this quite a lot during late night broadcasting, and it raises a couple of questions - 1. Is it really necessary to ruin a program with sign language when subtitles can easily be switched on, and 2. Do the progam schedulers think all deaf people are insomniacs? I maybe missing something here, and maybe not all deaf people can read subtitles and are indeed insomniacs. Anyone out there know?

They only put them on signed late if they have already been aired "non signed" - for those reasons I have no problem with it myself and think it's excellent and with regards to the insomniacs they can always Sky + or Video them to watch at another time.

I must admit I do find it distracting trying to watch something that's signed though.
