Season 1  |  Episode 3  |  SBS  |  November 13, 2012

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.
