This brand new TV show The Secret Life Of 5 Year Olds on Channel 4, explores the fun yet terrifying lives of 5 year olds at a play centre, set up by psychologists. We are given an insight on how they socialise, make new friends, react to winning or losing, and even denouncing  one as their new enemy!


I think the best way to describe the atmosphere is that of a ‘Big Brother’ type of show only, there is no winning money prize but just different 5 year olds experiencing all the emotions you can think of. For example, there is George, who argues with classmate, Alfie, about: what the sun is made of? Neither can propose a conclusion as one thinks it is made from different gases, whilst the other, lava!


Children are different and beautiful but entertaining in their own little way. Whether their character is that of an introvert or extrovert, they learn and grow through their divergent ideas of imagination and nevertheless, emotions which may foretell their sense of character in later life. Look out for the next new show of, The Secret Life of 6 Year Olds, on November 26 at 8pm, on Channel 4!
