From the creators of The Secret LIfe of the Zoo comes Generation Gifted - a major observational documentary which takes a unique look at social mobility through the eyes of six highly promising 13 year olds, who are all from families with low income, over three critical years. In the first episode we meet three 13 year old girls facing mounting pressure of their first year of exam preparation. For all three, so much of the journey is about personal confidence. All three girls are highly talented and intelligent, they just need the opportunities and self-belief. In the second episode we meet three intelligent 13 year old boys on the cusp of adulthood and facing many uncertainties. They too are talented young people with the potential for a bright future. This charming series explores the challenges facing these six children as they progress to age 16 and sitting their important examination of the year.
