A Year in the Life - Twenty Years On: Craghead

Susan Ord was just two years old and her brother newly born when their father Brian and grandfather George appeared in the BBC documentary 'A Year in the Life: For Craghead'. Two decades later, Susan and young Brian join Paul Watson to review his film and talk about the changes - both happy and tragic - that their family has been through in the intervening years.

Paul Watson, the narrator and producer of this programme and the film that inspired it, created an innovative series called 'The Family', which followed the Wilkins clan of Reading and is recognised as the first British 'docusoap'.
