01Blooming And Withering1997103119980501

Should we fight it or just accept that we have had our turn?

02Liberation Or Limitation?1997110719980508

In the second of three programmes, Sue Limb takes advice on how to grow old disgracefully.

Is age a limitation, as you suddenly discover that you cannot party all night, or a liberation, as you realise that you no longer want to party? Sue Limb takes advice on how to grow old disgracefully.

03 LASTAct Your Age1997111419980515

Sue Limb looks at what shapes our attitudes to age. Why do some cultures revere the elderly, while others ignore them? For the 60s generation, who have been changing attitudes all their lives, is old age the final frontier?
