Documentary filmmakerMichael Apted talks about the latest in his 7 Up series, "56 Up." Joining him is Tony Walker, one of the subjects who has been featured in the films since he was 7 years old.
forgive me, but tony sounds like more than a bit of a lout. he might be an okay guy,but i'd be wary of him. even as a little kid, one could see the hard edges.
Joy: the movie will be screening at the IFC (6th Ave at West 3rd St.) all this weekend - Mr. Apted and Mr. Walker will be there tonight at 7pm and 10pm, Sat at 3:55, 7:00 and 10:00pm, and Sun at 3:55 and 7:00pm.
very interesting interview- hope to see movie-- when did you say that one of them would be introducing the movie-- other than tonight? If someone heard that portion, do let me know- thanks--
Great show!!! I'm so surprised to hear Michael Apted on our local station.
Mr. Apted has done something absolutely remarkable in the UP series. NYC
Thanks for having this!
The OECD study to which Mr. Lopate referred (and thanks for mentioning it): http://www.oecd.org/eco/publicfinanceandfiscalpolicy/chapter%205%20gfg%202010.pdf
Nothing to complain about here, saw at least one of these films and it was a most generous experience.
Looking forward to seeing this. Have watched each and every one of the 7-Up series. Was a mite disappointed in 49-Up (people can become a little boring in middle age), but that hasn't effected my interest in the newest edition.
"a tremendous sense of unfairness in English society"
Maybe English society has changed for the better (or did until Thatcher came along). The US is far more unfair today than it was 50 years ago to the average American. Maybe it's time to follow some American kids.
As for social mobility: Most of the studies I've seen place the US dead last among industrial democracies in terms of social mobility (though it wouldn't surprise me if Britain were worse, especially given the Blair-Labor-Tory determination to be more American than the Americans).
