The Up Series is a set of documentary films that were initiated in the 1960s. These documentary films follow the life of 14 children from different social circles and classes of Britain. The purpose of the documentary was to identify as to whether the social class systems, like the one present in Britain had a direct effect on the children in the environment and therefore their future and prospective lives. The assumption was based on the popular notion that the future of a child is restricted and formed by the social class he/ she is born into.
The societies around the world are unequal in terms their wealth and income distribution as well as their social division and class (Keiken et al).Moreover while it is not possible to eradicate this phenomenon, people are still interested in getting to know about the changes taking place in the society pertaining to social class and its effects on the individuals confined to it.
