Family Ties
The last film in the series looks at the larger groups that form around married couples. The nuclear family - mother, father, children - is not the only model for family life, and possibly not the best. In Kenya the members of a middle-class polygamous family explain how the household works, and the husband and the wives give rather different versions of its benefits. In India a young couple who live in a large extended family explain what effect it has on their marriage. In Italy a proud grandfather has brought all his clan together to live in the same apartment block. And in California divorce and remarriage is forming a new kind of family, which they call the orange juice family, because it's reconstituted. Assistant producers
