P.O.V. | 49 Up | Preview | PBS

Duration: 02:08

In one of documentary cinema's more remarkable enterprises, "49 Up" makes its U.S. broadcast premiere on P.O.V. on PBS in October 9, 2007 as the seventh in a series of films that has profiled a group of English children every seven years, beginning in 1964.

Renowned director Michael Apted ("Coal Miner's Daughter," "Gorky Park," "Gorillas in the Mist") has doggedly pursued the series as the children have grown into adults, navigating the divide between childhood dreams and adult realities. "49 Up" revisits questions of love, marriage, career, class and prejudice - discovering unexpected turns in individual lives and surprising views of the Up film series itself.
