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.
