The Secret Life of the Family

Executive Producer: Karen Plumb

Honest, charming and revealing, The Secret Life of the Family captures the lives of British families 24/7, using reality rigs and personal cameras in homes across the UK. Written and narrated by comedian Hugh Dennis, each 60 minute episode reveals that we’ve all got far more in common than we might think, as we watch family mealtimes, bedtimes, car journeys and celebrations.

There are few situations in life that guarantee such a potent mix of drama, warmth and humour; and unlike traditional observational documentaries, The Secret Life of the Family has Hugh Dennis as a narrator with a unique point of view, illuminating family life in all its diversity, humanity and hilarity. With more than 17 million families in Britain, it’s the one precinct that we’re all familiar with, but just how ‘normal’ are we?
