Amazing! Today I come across The Independent’s news story “Up and away – how ’7 Up’ went global” saying, As the last episode of Britain’s ’56 Up’ airs, the first episode of ’28 Up’, from the former USSR, starts.
In the beginning, I was wondering what the show “56 Up” was about and why it was compared with the Soviet reality show “7 Up”. When reading the article, I recalled that there had been actually an old documentary done long, long time ago in the USSR time.
When I was a teenager in the 90s, I remember I saw the film about people, who were interviewed when they were kids, teenagers and already elders. But that piece was completed and mostly dedicated to what it was like to live in the Soviet time.
I didn’t even know that the same project was launched immediately after in the 90s. Now it’s called the “28 Up” TV show. Indeed, it would be very interesting to see how characters’ lives were change since the last years of the USSR through Eltzin’s time till Putin’s today.
‘Born in the USSR: 28 Up’ is on ITV1 on Monday at 10.35pm
