Horizon - Who Do You Want Your Child to Be

David Baddiel, father of two, sets out to answer one of the greatest questions a
parent can ask: how best to educate your child.

Taking in the latest scientific research, David uncovers some unconventional
approaches: from the parent hot-hosing his child to record-breaking feats of maths, to
a school that pays hard cash for good grades.

David witnesses a ground-breaking experiment that suggests a child's destiny can be
predicted at four, and hears the three little words that can ruin a child's chance of
success for good. He also uncovers the neurological basis for why teenagers can be
stroppy and explosive and has his own brain tinkered with to experience what it is
like to struggle at school.

Through it all, David's quest remains true: to maximise his child's potential for
success and happiness.
