7Up launched onto British TV in 1965, and has held audiences’ imagination ever since. But before 7UP, Britain was home to a pioneering medical study, tracking people born in 1946. Nearly 70 years later this MRC survey has changed understanding of the early life origins of wellbeing. The Bristol ALSPAC medical study, launched in 1991 is similarly ambitious in scope. From Cradle to Grave, brings together experts from all three landmark investigations to explore what we can learn from studying people across a lifetime.

Panel discussion chaired by Mark Easton (BBC Home Editor), with Claire Lewis (Producer 7 Up), Prof. Diana Kuh (UCL), Dr Katarzyna Kordas (ALSPAC, Bristol), Jackie Bassett (7 UP) and medical study participants.
