This classic film diary traces the first year in the life of one baby and her family. It looks at the critical learning periods and the landmarks in physical development during her first year, with comments and participation by Dr Hugh Jolly, the child specialist. Dr Jolly …’Play helps the child to know himself, by giving a chance to explore its own mental and physical capabilities and to use imagination. Play also enlarges horizons but at the same time helps to reduce the world to manageable proportions, enabling the making sense of the flood of impressions pouring in from the outside world’.

This film was made in 1979, so the film and sound quality is not to modern standards. This should not diminish the quality of its informative content.
