Babble Babble Babies

February 25, 2011

This documentary struck quite the chord with the author of this blog. Curious? When my 3rd son was born we were living in Merseyside and Dr.O was teaching Psychology 101! So it was a no brainer when the department decided they wanted to follow the development of a child from birth to the age of 3 years, that our newborn would make an ideal subject for the project. And so began the documentation of every little development, smile , tantrum… Oh and there were tantrums! And as we look back on this well documented time the memories are precious.

Babies follows a Namibian, a Mongolian, a Japanese and an American baby from birth to their early toddles. Since its release in the US ten months ago it has taken $7.5 million (£4.6 million) at the box office and another $5 million on DVD and has become a talking point on every talk show up to, and including, Oprah.
