Trivia

Director Paul Almond wanted the playground sequences to have a spontaneity to them so insisted that they be shot with a handheld camera. This caused consternation to the staid British documentary crew who told him that they simply didn't film that way. They acquiesced when Almond promised that he would take the heat for this decision if it didn't work. See more »

A great start to a brilliant series
24 May 1999 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

I first saw this about five years ago, and I couldn't wait to see the 7+7, 14, 21, 28 and 35, and am eagerly awaiting 42 up. It gets you in, it will make you want to know how these kids will turn out. I'm a lucky one, who didn't have to wait seven years for each of these episodes to come out.

If you have any interest in human behaviour, whether it be in kids or adults; if you wonder if what you thought you would be at seven, or fourteen is actually what you turn out to be; then you should watch this, and the rest of the series.
