This chapter provides short overviews of the longitudinal documentary works that will be the subject of more extensive analysis. The long doc work includes Michael Apted's Seven Up films, Winifred and Barbara Junge's The Children of Golzow and Swedish director Rainer Hartleb's The Children of Jordbrö. The Seven Up series had its origins in May 1964 when Granada Television transmitted a one-off 'special' in their World in Action series. Just like Apted's Seven Up series, Winfried and Junge's The Children of Golzow can also lay some claim to being a historically significant chronicle of the times. The series traces the lives of a group of citizens of the German Democratic Republic (GDR) who were born in the 1950s and grew up in the small town of Golzow.
