Child of our Time series on BBC One

A new 2-part OU/BBC series was shown on 3rd and 4th April. The series was commissioned for the University by OMIL, working with WELS Nominated Academics Tyrrell Golding, Dr Naomi Holford and Andy Rixon, and Media Fellow Fernando Rosell-Aquilar. In the year 2000 the BBC began filming the lives of 25 children born across the UK. As they turn 16, Professor Robert Winston and Professor Tanya Byron discover how they are being affected by huge changes in their brains and behaviour that could shape their lives forever.
