Predict My Future: The Science of Us

Meet the most scientifically studied people in the world. A group of 1,037 New Zealanders have been followed since their births in 1972 in the city of Dunedin. Members are now dispersed around the globe but 96 per cent of the original group are still taking part -- an extraordinary achievement in such a long-running study. This series follows the fascinating study and the information it has provided in almost every field of medical and social development, including respiratory and cardiovascular health, addictions, obesity, sexual health, cognitive neuroscience, psychiatry, genetics and criminology and, most interestingly, the effects of nature and nurture on health and behaviour.
