56 Up...in this life together

This NOAA satellite image taken Saturday, Aug. 25, 2012 at 1:45 a.m. EDT shows a mass of clouds in the Caribbean Sea associated with Tropical Storm Isaac as it pounds Hispaniola with heavy rain and strong wind.  Isaac will continue on its path toward western Cuba and southern Florida through the weekend, possibly gaining hurricane strength.  For more information, please see http://www.wunderground.com/tropical/.  Clouds in the Plains are associated with a front that is producing a few areas of rain and thunderstorms in the area.

Sometimes we meet people and wonder years later, “I wonder what happened to them?”

The “Up” series gives us a glimpse into that wondering. Michael Apted, a British filmmaker, started the series in 1964 with “Seven Up” interviewing 14 children – at age 7 – and telling their stories. Telling evolved into following this group every seven years and this fall we can see what became of those children – now 56 years old.

Often we define ourselves through our differences. Apted has learned that we are much more alike in our human experiences of love, loss, relationship and human longing than perhaps we understand. Watch for the “56 Up” installment this fall on PBS. (See story)
