BCS70 is a birth cohort study that has been following the lives of around 17,000 people born in England, Scotland and Wales in a single week of 1970.
But how has it contributed to data, policy and society on issues as diverse as the gender pay gap, early years education provision and the benefits of reading for pleasure?
What role can it now play as policy-makers look for solutions to societal problems exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic?
We are joined by the authors of some of the most influential research to have come from the study as well current policy shapers and experts.
Introduction by Alice Sullivan, Professor of Sociology and Head of Research for the Social Research Institute. Alice is author of influential BCS70 research on inequalities in education and society.
Chaired by Dr Lee Elliot Major, OBE, Professor of Social Mobility, University of Exeter.
