Help me find the Title of this Video/Documentary?

Asked by albert_e (529points) October 3rd, 2010

Way back in the year 2006, on the International Mother’s Day (must be 14-May-2006), I remember watching a series of documentaries on the Discovery Channel (in India) covering the various aspects of child development – starting from a newborn baby, to a couple of years of age—for example, how they learn to walk, how they learn to speak, etc.. These were each 30 min – 1 hour episodes shown back to back throughout that afternoon.

I remember being impressed as well as moved by these wonderful documentaries. Unfortunately, I do not remember the exact title of these videos or who produced it.

Appreciate any help in figuring out which exact series this was. I am very much interested in getting my hands on this whole series—I cant even think how I can start searching for this stuff. Know of any documentaries that fit this description?

Thanks all, I am checking out all the titles you have referred. Sound very good.

The BBC documentary ‘Child Of Our Time’ (mentioned by @sakura) seems to be the closest – but I am not sure.

Any idea if I can write to the people at Discovery for this info? I looked up their contacts but only Advertizing contacts are available. Any pointers here? Thanks again!

You could look at the suggestions or “people also bought”.... with the amazon link I sent previously. Or the lists at the bottom of the page. It might pop up. Worth a try anyways. Good luck!
