Excellent British show following a group of children from age 7 to age 56. Every 7 years, the interviewer contact these people.

Documentaries don't get much better than this. Watch it--you won't be disappointed. Just make sure you have a lot of time on your hands when you begin, because it has such a compelling, almost addictive quality, that you'll probably want to watch one disk after another.

I watched this over the years on PBS as each part was released. To be able to view all parts in succession is very compelling. I cannot recommend this series enough...better than "reality" tv. These are real lives evolving, filmed with honesty, respect and grace.
