Boys and Girls Alone

An ambitious and sometimes controversial four-part documentary series sees ten boys and ten girls aged between eight and eleven being given the chance to experience life without mum and dad for two weeks. Living in two 'villages' and separated on gender lines, they decide everything about how they live - what they do, what they eat, when they get up, whether they clean and wash and how they organise and entertain themselves. Who will cope best without mum and dad? And who will build the better world - boys or girls?
