  1. At the age of 78 Michael Apted is a fair age. Unless he out lives them all I would hope someone else with the same dedication will take over

  2. I’m not sure what’s more scary, how interesting I find this series or the fact it’s already been another 7 years since the last instalment!

    • Yes, how time flies !
      So looking forward to this. Have followed it from the very beginning.
      I especially remember Neil – such a bright and animated little boy at 7, positively bursting with optimism and enthusiasm. He seemed to have so much potential so heartbreaking to see him so changed and sad due to mental illness, in further instalments of the show.
      Really hope to see him happy and well and doing well in his life in this latest instalment. .

      • I agree. Neil’s story was heartbreaking. He seemed to have as much potential as his counterparts but his life became a stark contrast of the other cast members. His living conditions were sad. There had been some improvement in his life, yet I don’t know about what will be seen in the latest instalment.

  3. I remember this series. It is one of the greatest concepts for a documentary. It was interesting to see the life changes in the people that were cast. It would be beneficial for the previous instalments to be shown in the lead up to 63 Up, or to see the previous instalments beforehand, however, 63 Up would probably have some backstory anyway.

      They’ve all been made available on SBS On Demand.
