The human life, being rediscovered.
28 August 2006 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

Whoever knew following the life of humans from the time they come into this world is going to be so easy? But Child Of Our Time is going to follow its subjects for 25 years to uncover the various aspects of human life that we so often know, but maybe never really to go probe into it.

This documentary-cum-reality series is actually still on-going and there are still many years to go for the subjects being part of a major BBC television's experiment.

It's amazing how sometimes our personalities and traits are being formed when we were still learning how to walk and talk. Some may develop faster, some just takes time. But in the end, it's always an amazing rediscovery of the human cycle. Are our traits just being inborn, or do we get it from our parents? This is just one of the various questions this documentary-cum-reality series is trying to answer.

For me, being having almost no recollection how I was like when I was still a toddler unless I look at past photos and my parents' accounts, this is a rediscovery of how I might had been before the current times.

Just watch an episode and it will be a real eye-opener. It's true.
