Five Years in the Life (Series) (1968-1972)

The original plan for Five Years in the Life was to produce a series of half-hour documentary films on ten families from different areas of Canada, and then return five years later for a second look. The first series was popular enough that the network modified the plan and produced further profiles of Canadian families, while periodically looking back at families that had been profiled earlier in the series's history. As the program evolved, it also concentrated on individuals as well as families. The filmmakers minimized commentary and tended to use direct cinema techniques.
