Coming Up: 56 Up
Monday, Oct. 14, at 10pm on WGBH 2
56 Up is the eighth film in a series of landmark documentaries that began 49 years ago when UK-based Granada’s World in Action team interviewed a diverse group of seven-year-old children from all over England, asking them about their lives and their dreams for the future. Michael Apted, a researcher for the original film, has returned to interview the “children” every seven years since, at ages 14, 21, 28, 35, 42, 49 and now at age 56. In this latest chapter, more of the original group takes part than ever before.
Return to England for the eighth film in a series that’s followed the same group since age seven.
