For 100 days and nights the Hughes Family allow the cameras into their home for this fly on the wall observational series. In an attempt to capture everyday life in the UK, the series moulds itself around the family dynamics, of dad, Simon; mum, Julie; and their four children Jessica, Emily, Charlotte, and Tom as the camera eaves drops on every aspect of their lives.
As head of the house, dad, Simon, is the family cook, taxi driver, the default person to ask anything, and the one who has to pretend to be in charge. Simon regularly comes head to head with Emily, the headstrong, rebellious, trouble-making party animal of the clan who strives to push her parents to their limit. Their feisty relationship, however, is balanced out by the peacemakers Julie and Charlotte and the baby of the family 14 year old Tom.
The Family is an extra-ordinary insight into the lives of an ordinary family that captures some universal truths about family life.
