Description

The latest instalment in a groundbreaking documentary series which has become one of the most acclaimed long-term television studies of real people ever made. Drawing members of the group from different backgrounds and different parts of the UK, the programme highlighted sharp contrasts between the children as it set out to discover whether or not their lives were pre-determined by their background. Over the past five decades the series has documented the group as they have become adults, dealing with everything life has thrown at them in between, and provided a unique snapshot of British social history. Now it catches up with the group as they approach their half-century.
