The series similarly followed Jackie through marriage in her 20s and divorce by age 35. In 35 Up, she had a son from a brief relationship after her divorce. By 42 Up, she'd had two more sons from passing encounters, and she was living with all three boys in a council flat near Glasgow. 49 Up finds Jackie and sons in Scotland. Surviving on benefits and suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, she says wistfully that Scotland reminds her of the close-knit world of London's East End when she was growing up.

There aren't many pieces of work, especially in film, that have the patience or the longevity or the time to honor the drama of ordinary life; and after all, the drama of what we all have to go through — children, jobs, marriage, the things that touch us — is the big drama of life, far more so than the drama of movies and television.”
