It's on next Monday and Tuesday.

Can anyone remember when the last one was on as it seems like years? They are all teenagers now. shock

Thanks for the heads up, just put it on record!

busyboysmum Fri 31-Mar-17 22:51:47

Me too. Thanks. Been following it since it started as ds1 was born the same year. He's also now a strapping teenager. Where does the time go?

FizzPopping Fri 31-Mar-17 22:56:15

Thanks for heads up - another one with a turn of the millennium baby here (who is now 1/2 foot taller than me grin)

BertieBotts Sat 01-Apr-17 06:48:57

Oh great! Thanks for heads up OP smile

Thank you. They were born st the same time as Dd so will be interesting to see how things have moved on.

Lapinlapin Sat 01-Apr-17 08:18:40

Oh wow! I loved this programme. That's so much for the heads up. I would probably have missed it otherwise.

Hassled Sat 01-Apr-17 08:20:31

Oh I love this show - can't wait.

JustDanceAddict Sat 01-Apr-17 08:21:50

Fantastic - they're slightly older than DD so must be around 16.

BertieBotts Sat 01-Apr-17 08:44:04

They are always the same age as the year, JustDance grin So yes 16 turning 17.

I'm watching the 2013 update now as I missed it at the time. The last one I'd seen was the personality one.

I remember all of the DC though some have dropped out over the years, haven't they?

It's interesting how more grown up the girls are. The boys don't seem much different to the last one I watched.

Sad how many parents have split up and of course Eve's mum who died. sad

NormaSmuff Sat 01-Apr-17 09:34:42

oh they will be coming up to 17 years old

BertieBotts Sat 01-Apr-17 09:36:49

Who wants to put bets on how many minutes in the Sound of Music song will be played??

DontCallMeBaby Sat 01-Apr-17 10:01:05

So looking forward to this ... DD is 4 years younger so it's like a glimpse into the future (in fact I must seek out the last series and rewatch, as that's the age she is now). There are a few photos floating around online, and it's become really hard to spot who's who. I'm crap at names, so without the older photo alongside to go 'so that's Rhianna, and when she was little she looked like ... oh, her!' I'd only have recognised the twins.

chicaguapa Sat 01-Apr-17 10:27:08

Here's where you can watch the last one. Link to 2013 Update Part one

DontCallMeBaby Sat 01-Apr-17 22:15:59

Thank you so much! You'd think the BBC would put at least the last series on iPlayer in preparation, wouldn't you?

I'm all set for Monday now, though I'm a bit worried about Matthew's lovely posh granny with Parkinson's. I doubt four years have been kind to her. And the triplets' granny, I hope she's still around, she's ace.

chicaguapa Sat 01-Apr-17 22:48:27

Oh no! I hadn't thought that about Matthew's granny. I was upset watching that today and you're right, it's going to be much worse on Monday. sad

I love Rhianna's parents. You can see that the dad drives the mum round the bend, but the way she looks at him you can see she adores him. I hope they're still together as I think they had some problems at one point.

Oooh i love child of our time!

purpleme12 Sun 02-Apr-17 21:02:39

It hasn't been on for ages. Don't know why they stopped it

TheSecondOfHerName Sun 02-Apr-17 21:31:14

My eldest was born in the same winter as these young people (about six weeks after them) so I've been following the series since the beginning. Their parents gave consent for filming on their behalf, but now they are old enough to make the decision for themselves. I wonder how many of them agreed to continue to take part.

TheSecondOfHerName Sun 02-Apr-17 21:34:10

They started with 25 children, and the original plan was to keep filming them regularly until 2020.
