* BritishAccents: Pronounced.
** Neil and Peter have Scouse accents reminiscent of Music/TheBeatles.
** The public school kids speak classic Received Pronunciation ("Stop it at ''once''!").
** Yorkshire: Nick, of course. Elements of which is still detectable in later life in America.
** East London: Jackie, Lynn, Susan and Tony
* UsefulNotes/BritishEducationSystem: Forms a major part of it, as the creator, Michael Apted, initially wanted to show the unfair privileges private education granted.
** TheGoodOldBritishComp: Jackie and Susan attend one
** {{Oxbridge}}: John, Andrew and Nick all go to Oxford. Charles didn't make it, and said he was glad in a sense to have avoided the "prep school-Marlborough-Oxbridge conveyor belt". Neil didn't make it either, leading to a HeroicBSOD.

* ATouchOfClassEthnicityAndReligion: The original documentary's hypothesis, based on the quote at the top of this page, was that the UK's class structure is so strong a person's life path would be set at birth: at seven years old, the children's lives would already be representative of what they would grow up into. The assumption is that those born into the 'higher' classes of society will do better for themselves than those from the 'lower', who will struggle to progress up the social ladder. (The producer of the original programme had at one point thought to line 20 children up on the street, have three of them step forward and narrate ''"of these twenty children, only three will be successful"''... an idea which was not used, [[ValuesDissonance perhaps mercifully in hindsight]].) The idea of class immobility held up in most, but not all, cases as the series has progressed: the children from the working classes have by and large remained in those circles, though Tony seems to have become more middle class.

The ''Up'' Series comprises (at present) eight television documentaries following 14 English people's lives from the age of 7 upward. Beginning as an episode of the [[{{ITV}} Granada]] Television ''World In Action'' series in 1964, "Seven Up!" aimed to show the different attitudes and prospects of children from different social classes. It proved so popular that the children were revisited seven years later, and every seven years after that. Film director Michael Apted (''GorillasInTheMist, Film/TheWorldIsNotEnough, Film/TheVoyageOfTheDawnTreader'') was involved with the original programme as a young researcher and chose the child participants, and has made every subsequent instalment over the decades since.
