In 1964 fourteen children were interviewed for the documentary, 7 Up. All of these children were seven years old and from completely different backgrounds. The basic premise was to examine the Jesuit theory, "Give me a child until he is 7, and I will show you the man." Is a person's fate sealed at birth? Every seven years after that acclaimed director Michael Apted returned to those children to chart their progress through life. In so doing, Apted has created the longest running real-life documentary ever made.

The first town of over 1 million people was built more than 2000 years ago. Without any of our modern conveniences, and what we would consider necessities today, how did they function? Professor Andrew Wallace-Hadrill explores the remains of these ancient megalopolises, explaining how to make a city work without the benefits of modern technology. He first journeys across stunning locations in Greece to find out how Athens gave birth to the idea of a city run by free citizens. Andrew then reveals how Rome surpassed all those cities from the ancient world that had gone before.
