ITV’s new documentary series Happy Families looks behind Britain’s net curtains for an intimate insight into how we as families live, love and laugh. ROBERT LINDSAY narrates the 4-part show, which premiered last Thursday on ITV.
Filled with hilarity and heartbreak, the series captures life issues that resonate across the generational, social, cultural and geographical fabric of the country, showing what it means to be a family in Britain today. With cameras placed on fixed rigs throughout the home, capturing every moment from breakfast to bedtime, four families were each filmed for one week. From the north of England to the south coast, toddlers to teenagers, child birth to marriage, from the breadline to middle class comfort – the families are inter-weaved to reveal what makes them the same and sets them apart, and what it means to be a happy family.
Tune in tonight and for the next two Thursdays at 9pm on ITV.
