The third of a series of documentary films that have followed the lives of fourteen British children since 1964, when they were seven years old. The children were selected to represent the range of socio-economic backgrounds in Britain at that time, with the explicit assumption that each child's social class predetermines their future. Director Michael Apted takes the helm as the subjects, now aged twenty-one, talk about their lives and their hopes and dreams for the future.

He is Maruge (Oliver Litondo), an old Mau Mau veteran in his eighties, who is desperate to learn to read at this late stage of his life. He fought for the liberation of his country and now feels he must have the chance of an education so long denied - even if it means sitting in a classroom alongside six-year-olds.

In the history of sports, few names are more recognisable than that of Evel Knievel. Long after the man hung up his famous white leather jumpsuit and rode his Harley into the sunset, his name is still synonymous with the death-defying lifestyle he led. Notoriously brash, bold and daring, Knievel stared death in the face, but few know the larger-than-life story of the boy from Butte, Montana. Academy Award-winning filmmaker Daniel Junge and actor-producer Johnny Knoxville take a candid look at the American daredevil and icon.

Yakuza is a term which originally stems from the world of gambling, but the word, literally meaning 'eight-nine-three', has other connotations. In Japan, more than 86,000 so-called yakuza are members of consortiums that are fronts for the mafia. The yakuza are led by dictatorial bosses and operate in a world with its own set of rules. In contemporary Japan, it is hard to find enough subservient and reliable disciples, who can be accepted into the clan after a one-year internship. Young Yakuza follows one of them, a 20-year-old freeloader named Naoki.
