49 Up

And now they are 49. Michael Apted's legendary social experiment continues with 10 of the original 12 participants taking part. With each entry seeming to outdo its predecessors, what makes this series so engaging is the complete candour with which the subjects, now used to Apted's seven-yearly visits, reveal themselves, their struggles and their triumphs. Utterly engrossing and with all the ingredients great stories should have: humour, pathos, poignancy and drama. A must see.
