Filmed over the course of three years, Babies is a landmark series that explores the miracle of the first full year of life through the pioneering work of leading scientists from across the globe.
In the last 15 years, there has been an explosion in our understanding of the baby brain. For the first time, scientists are discovering that even the youngest babies know more, see more and understand far more than we ever thought possible.
The series examines the epic journey every person embarks on, from helpless newborn to independent toddler. Following the life-changing adventures of 15 international families and featuring the latest research from eminent scientists who share their personal journeys of discovery into the infant mind, the series is filled with the exciting uncertainty of parenting, exploring each major milestone of development like never before. From the first bond, a baby shares with its parents, to learning to feed, sleep through the night, crawl across the room, speak their first words, and discover the world around them – right up to those first steps of toddlerhood.
There are currently six episodes in the series: Love, First Food, Crawling, First Words, Sleep, First Steps.
