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.

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.
