In this series of four family portraits, Michael O'Donnell explores how shifting social and moral attitudes in Britain have affected family life.
Are we more self-seeking, less compassionate than we were, with standards slipping and family ties loosening, to the point of disinterest - even disloyalty? Or are we now turning our backs on 'permissiveness', in order to embrace some vague notion of the Victorian ethic? 1: The Gray sons
In this first programme, good-natured pragmatism, Yorkshire humour and the watchful eye of a remarkable grandmother carry the Graysons through an eventful and sometimes stormy family saga.
Producer SHARON BANOFF
