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.
