Jude Edginton photographs 'Circus Kids : Our Secret World' for Channel 5

This revealing documentary series provides a honest insight into the world of circus kids.

This new series looks at the kids growing up, working and performing in a touring circus. Fifteen-year-old Yasmin dreams of a permanent slot as an aerialist, but she has only recently taken it up, with top performers starting at the age of three or four. Meanwhile, two-year-old twins Esmerelda and Scarlett are already part of their grandfather’s act. More dedicated, passionate and diligent young people would be hard to imagine.
