See the love between patients and their nearest and dearest. Eighty-nine-year-old Sir John Cockburn arrives at St George's with acute abdominal pain. Medics think it could be a triple A, an abdominal aortic aneurysm, which can prove fatal. When test results come back, Sir John faces emergency surgery. Sir John's son, Jonathan, talks about his father's long and fascinating life, his eccentric approach to business as a wine merchant and growing up in a rambling manor house where the children lived a loving, carefree existence. Meanwhile 68-year-old Mick and wife Linda have been involved in a head-on car crash. Mick took the brunt of the impact and has multiple injuries from top to toe that could be life changing. The couple fell in love after leaving previous relationships, making a happy life together in their mobile home. And 10-year-old Niall is brought to Emergency after falling eight feet out of a tree during a family picnic. He's broken his arm so badly it looks like a banana and orthopaedic doctors need to work out how to get it back in place.

Michael Apted's latest instalment in the groundbreaking 7 Up series. In 1964, to explore the adage "Give me a child until he is seven and I will give you the man," filmmakers interviewed a group of British children aged seven from widely ranging backgrounds, about a range of subjects. Apted took the reins for the second series and the 'children' have been followed up every seven years since. At 49, twelve agree to talk about family, work, their hopes and the series.

When a cross-section of British seven-year-olds were interviewed for 7 Up in 1964, it was evident that their social backgrounds influenced their attitudes towards life. While the upper class children were self-assured, those from middle and working class backgrounds were resigned to a life of hard work. This premise was put to the test every seven years when the same group were interviewed about the state of their lives. Now, at the age of 56, the group are once more brought together to assess whether their lives have been ruled by circumstances or self-determination.
