We explore the first decade of the 1970 British Cohort Study (1970) and the impact of its early years research on policy many years later.

Guests include:

  • Professor Jean Golding, BCS70 researcher during the 1970s/80s, and founder of the ALSPAC study, known as ‘Children of the Nineties’.
  • Dr Leon Feinstein, academic and author of one of the most well-known BCS70 studies, which influenced New Labour policy on early years education provision.
  • Study members, who share their memories of growing up in the 1970s, and their early recollections of participating in the study.
