The series saw Paul, who lived in a children's home as a seven-year-old, emigrate to Australia in his early teens. Now, in 49 Up, he has a wife and children, and talks proudly of his daughter, the first member of his family to go to university. But there are clouds in Paul's sky — a change in career by his wife bodes ill for his own hopes.

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.”
