28 Up Part 2 [electronic resource]: U.K.

After three previous installments, each one covering a particular stage of human growth and development, the Up series turned age 28 into an epochal study - one that required three separate parts in order to tell its ongoing stories.

As with all Up episodes produced after the first one, the program includes plenty of footage taken from earlier years so that viewers can easily compare the different stages.
