The Family

The Family is a British fly-on-the-wall documentary series that aired from 17 September 2008 to 22 December 2010 on Channel 4. Each series follows a chosen family, consisting of parents and their children. The project aim was to gain a picture of everyday family life in the United Kingdom, as film-maker and director Jonathan Smith attempted to "condense four months of ordinary family life into eight films". The series is a revival of the original series of the same name that first aired in 1974.
