Child of our Time
Professor Robert Winston follows the development of 25 children born in 2000
About the series
In 2000 the BBC set out on an ambitious project; to follow the lives of 25 children after their birth at the turn of the millennium. Since then we have been in their homes, from towns and villages to inner-cities and the countryside revealing the ups and downs life has thrown at them and in the process we’ve captured ordinary family life in 21st Century Britain.
We’ve witnessed how our families have changed and now Child of our Time is growing up; our children, now in their teenage years, are sharing their own thoughts and feelings, while their parents and grandparents reflect on their childhood, and look forward to their development as adults.
