  7 - 63 Up on Blu-ray and DVD [read more]
  Possibly the greatest documentary TV series of all time
  'Give me a child until he is seven and I will give you the man'

Inspired by this Jesuit motto and World in Action founder editor Tim Hewat's anger at Britain's rigid class system, the landmark UP documentary series is as pertinent today as it was back in 1964. Over 56 years in the making it has become an historical snapshot of British society through the decades and a unique perspective from which to reflect on our own lives.

The original Seven Up!, broadcast in 1964, brought 14 children from widely different social backgrounds together to share their hopes and ambitions, as well as their fears, for the future and set out to discover how far children's lives were pre-determined by their backgrounds.

Across the series Andrew, Charles, John, Suzy, Jackie, Lynn, Sue, Tony, Paul, Symon, Nick, Peter, Neil and Bruce (not all of whom have returned for every series) discuss race, religion, class, gender, education, relationships, health, freedom, discipline, workers rights, money, politics, prejudice and more - they delve into every aspect that makes up their lives. Picking up with them every seven years provides not only a welcome update on the group but a truly insightful look at how and why their opinions and outlooks have altered and how their interactions with each other have changed and matured over time. This groundbreaking television series is a momentous achievement and marks itself as the original reality TV social experiment documenting the human psyche.

Now all nine editions in this acclaimed and award winning documentary film series (including special features) are available in a very special box set from Network Distributing, released on Monday 14th October on Blu-ray and DVD.
