This new Ettinger Brothers / ITV Studios documentary due to be shown on ITV 1 - 13th June 9.00 p.m. follows one of Britain’s most extraordinary families.
Ettinger Brothers have documented the amazing story of Janet and Graham Walton since the birth of their sextuplet baby girls on 18 November 1983.
Janet and Graham Walton made history, becoming parents to the world’s first surviving all female sextuplets. Their childhood has been documented on film up to the age of 18, when they retired from the spotlight, and they have not been featured on television for almost a decade.
This latest film explores how the girls have now grown into independent young women of 27, and the close bond that their family shares.
The programme includes archive footage of the girls and an intimate look at their upbringing. It also features the family watching the old footage of themselves, their reactions to it and speaking about the memories that it evokes. Graham and Janet speak about the unique challenge of bringing up sextuplets and their parenting philosophy. Janet says: “I think if your children have got individuality you've succeeded, because that's what you want for them.”
