Series 1 - Episode 1 The Girl with Seven Mums



Documentary following nine-year-old Ellie Sharp as she is raised by her Jewish father Philip and his seven wives - each of whom performs a different role in the home of Britain's only openly polygamous family. As cameras capture the emotional and practical difficulties created by such a complicated household structure, the programme also features Ellie's first steps into the outside world - when she visits a classroom for the very first time.
