"Give me the child until he is seven and I will give you the man."
Starting in 1964 with Seven Up, The UP Series has explored this Jesuit maxim. The original concept was to interview 14 children from diverse backgrounds from all over England, asking them about their lives and their dreams for the future. Every seven years, renowned director Michael Apted, a researcher for Seven Up, has been back to talk to them, examining the progression of their lives.
From cab driver Tony to schoolmates Jackie, Lynn and Susan and the heart-breaking Neil, as they turn 49 more life-changing decisions and surprising developments are revealed.
An astonishing, unforgettable look at the structure of life in the 20th century, The UP Series is, according to critic Roger Ebert,
"One of the towering achievementsin the history of documentary film." --- Philadelphia Inquirer
"Wonderous, Astonishing!" --- The New Yorker
"an inspired, almost noble use of the film medium. Apted penetrates to the central mystery of life." "One of the most rewarding and uplifting films I've ever seen. It makes you feel better about the human race." - --London Sunday Times

I would love to know about buying all those other versions, too. I saw the US age 14 and 21(as well as Age 7) and USSR/Russia Age 7 & 14, on various cable & PBS channels. USSR/Russia was fantastic. It seems impossible to find these docs to watch, let alone to buy.
