Child Of Our Time: 24 Hours
Season 8  |  Episode 3  |  BBC Knowledge  |  March 31, 2011

All of the Child of our Time children are filmed continuously for 48 hours, putting their day-to-day lives under the microscope. Every movement is analysed to build a real picture of a day in the life of the average British child. Every day we hear about the miserable state of modern childhood. Experts tell us that the pressures of 21st-century life are turning our kids into sad, lazy telly addicts who have forgotten how to play. But can things really have become so bad? Has childhood been cancelled? Do the Child of Our Time children reflect this bleak portrait of modern life?
