From childhood to old age, a journey through life reflected in the mirror.

From childhood to old age, a journey through life reflected in the mirror - via a series of interviews recorded with people as they confront their reflection.

What do they see? How has their face changed? What stories lie behind the wrinkles and scars? We hear the initial wonder of the small child give way to the embarrassment of the teenager and the acceptance of later-life.

Created by multi-award-winning documentary-maker, Cathy FitzGerald, this moving programme hops from home to home in contemporary Britain, catching its subjects in bedrooms and bathrooms and lounges, to hold up a mirror to the ageing process itself.
