Trivia

Only 4 of the 14 children were girls - while the programme aimed to show children from different class backgrounds, equal gender representation was not particularly considered in 1964. Michael Apted has stated that one of his regrets about this series is that he not take feminism into account, and consequently included fewer girls and did not select them on the basis of any possible careers they might choose.

Incredibly Moving
24 February 2002 | by (Puerto Rico) – See all my reviews

This is a series that should be watched by everybody. It is remarkable to see the kids grow, and deal with life like everyone has to. As far as documentaries go, this series should be awarded a special Academy Award because it is one of the best ever made.
