Beginnings Count: A Lot

It reveals that some of what happens in early life has no lasting psychological affects (thumb sucking, bedwetting), while other behaviors are significant indicators for adult health, wealth, and happiness. See examples of the five personality types, how they compare to the population, and what their lives are like.

Changing Minds

In this episode, Professor Robert Winston and Professor Tanya Byron discover how our teenagers' changing brains mean that what they choose to do at 16 can shape their lives forever. With surprising new research in human biology and neuroscience, we reveal how the most baffling aspects of teenage life can be explained and illuminated by the latest understanding of the changing teenage brain. The brains of our 16-year-olds are wired to feel more self-conscious, to be more mentally creative, and to feel more intense pleasure than at any other time in their lives. Through intimate stories, compelling archival footage and experiments, Child of Our Time brings you the inside story of today's 16-year-olds.

I Clown for Youhoo!

Clowns today are laughter artists whose tools range from cream pie to poetic delirium. But many also lead a double life of care and tenderness. In I Clown for Youhoo! we meet Doc Willikers, Dr. Fifi, Onri Ireland, and many other loving and crazy clowns who bring laughter to children immobilized in their hospital beds, elderly persons awaiting death, refugees from whom war has taken everything, and juvenile offenders. With and without their red nose, they tell us about their work and life. They bring us into a world where lightness, darkness, laughter, and tears are often intermingled and where life, courage, and hope overcome all.

Naked

Naked is an endearing and moving documentary/animation series in which children between the ages of 10 and 13 tell us personal stories about the changes their bodies are going through. What does it mean to grow breasts and pubic hair? How does it influence the way you see yourself, and how do you deal with all these awkward changes? The series was shot on digital video and then animated through so-called rotoscope animation, meaning the video-images were traced and colored. This animated format complements the stories told and results in a series of amusing and moving six-minute portraits of pre-adolescents struggling with their changing bodies. 1. Minouk (12 years old): Body Size 2. Mitchell (13 years old): Puberty 3. Ilham (13 years old): Menstruation 4. Tom (12 years old): Body Od [...]
