Does anyone know if they are planning on doing another series of this in 2009 (or have I missed it?)

They have a website but not sure if the programme details are on it

I was wondering about this. I remember last years programmes, but haven't seen anything this year.

ParisFrog Mon 26-Oct-09 15:21:49

Only looked quickly, and can't find the programming schedule but they have clips.

Type Child of Our Time into google

The 10th anniversary series of Child of Our Time is due to be broadcast in spring 2010.

Was there not something about them only doing the shows once every two years now the children are getting older.

Yeah I think you're right TwoIfByScream. Afterall, development slows down a lot now they're at this age, there probably wouldn't be that much to say in just one year.

I love this programme. I think of poor little Eve at random moments, I hope she's coping without her mum.

one of my children was born in 2000 so I watch it and compare my DS1 to the children in the programme blush

Oh god, Eve.

Cried many a tear for that dear child

You can watch the first 5 years (I think?) On the BBC website - does anyone know where I can watch the rest of them? I am finding it all newly fascinating since DS was born. I think I will watch my way through series 1 & 2 now he is one...

Dont you think its staged though? I mean the ones that they have followed recently (Im pretty sure we did have one this year, or some kind of update) werent the original lot. Do you reckon people have dropped out as the years have gone by? and maybe only a certain type has stayed in? Im just saying this because my friend and I both said last time how the families all seemed to be white middle class professionals on the whole and thats not how it started out is it?

Im a big fan of this programme and im sure it has not been on this year.

Over the years it has definetely tailed off a bit.

I think people have dropped out. It can be quite competitive, shouldve maybe just done the first 7 years. It might not have been on fully but there was definitely a special, I remember seeing Paris in a programme.

There is a Mumsnetter who is a friend of Eve's family.

I love this programme and was upset when Eves mum died, i know i didn't know them personally but i watched every programme and i remmebered Eve as a tiny baby with her mum so proud. I hope the family are coping.

I know what you mean about Eve it was so very, very sad sad

I have just checked Wikipedia (I know, I know) and it lists only 8 series up to 2008.

So, it looks like no series this year so far.

GuyFawkesIsMyLoveSlave Tue 03-Nov-09 23:40:54

BBC says the next series due to be broadcast in spring 2010. And the last series was 2008 so it looks as though they have gone to every other year.
