Abstract

This chapter has three linked aims. its primary aim is to explore, through a discussion of contemporary British film and television texts, the apparently inevitable and neutral topic of growth, or growing, in childhood. Second, it addresses questions of agency and identity in relation to that growth and, third, it considers the question of the child's growing body and its interdependence with his or her closest kin, peers and environment.
