12 Years Old And Caring For Mum

Channel 5

FORMAT: 1 x 60′

The programme follows three families coping with day to day life under very challenging circumstances. Told entirely from the point of view of a child within each family – and heavily featuring video diary shot by the children themselves – these are honest and moving stories. The children are all aged between 11 and 13, but they possess experiences and powerful insights that have the ability to hold a mirror up to the adult world.
