Keeping Up with the Maileys
Series 5

Primary school teacher Tricia Mailey is mum to Cara, twelve, Noah, five, and one-year-old Bethany. Tricia and husband Sean run a home filled with laughter and love, but what makes this everyday family so unique is that Tricia and her two elder children have the height-restricting condition achondroplasia, while Sean and Bethany are average-height.

Despite their physical differences, the Maileys have created an unbreakable bond as they navigate the ups and downs of everyday life. Filmed across six months as they juggle family, work and school, this documentary gives an insight into what it means to be small in a world designed for average-height people.
