A Film 49 Years in the Making: 56 Up
In 1964 a group of British 7 year-olds were interviewed about their lives and dreams in a groundbreaking documentary called "Seven Up." Since then, director Michael Apted has returned to film the same individuals every seven years, tracking the progress of their lives, the ups as well as the downs.
POV, which presented the U.S. broadcast of "49 Up" in 2007, returns with "56 Up" tonight at 9:00 PM on KMOS-TV channel 6.1 Through marriage and childbirth, poverty and illness, the "kids" have come to terms with both the hope and disappointments in their lives.
