The Secret Life of…

This week the second series of ‘The Secret Life of…’ starts. Last time it was focused on four year olds. This time it is extended to five and six year olds as well.

If you watched the programmes last year you will know what to expect – a ‘fly in the wall’ insight into the daily school life of a group of children with a focus on their friendships and interactions.

This time it will be interesting to see the differences between the younger and older children.

From your point of view as students you might like to consider the ethics of this filming of young children – how does this relate to the need for informed consent? There is a clip about the making of the programme that you might find interesting.
