Did anyone see this? It's on ITV player (here: http://www.itv.com/itvplayer/video/?Filter=316919)
For anyone who hasn't seen it, it's a documentary which follows the lives of ordinary people and catches up with them every 7 years. So the participants have been involved since they were 7 years old (some of them dropped out for good and some of them dropped out and rejoined).
I thought that Neil - the guy who ended up being a Liberal Democrat was a really interesting character.
After watching it though I felt a bit down. It makes you realize how fast life goes and actually how predictable we are as individuals from an objective perspective. I've read some comments on newspaper reviews of the show and a lot of people seem to have picked up on it - the fact that you can predict how someone's life will pan out (not in all cases) while that individual never had any idea. I find that kind of uncomfortable - it means that I am predictable too! On the positive side though, it was nice that everyone seemed to be happy with their lives and that they were all successful in their own way.
Thoughts on the first episode (it's a 3 part documentary)?
