The Baby Boomers' Guide to Growing Old explores the lives of Britain's over-65s through the eyes of pension-aged celebrities. Each episode takes a wry look at a different aspect of life, as the celebrities pair up to explore 'third age' activities and lifestyles.
This week, our baby boomers bring their sense of mischief to the complex issue of love and relationships in later life. Actress Amanda Barrie and cricket commentator Henry Blofeld take the reins for the day at a dating agency, tasked with setting up septuagenarian John with a date for cuddles and maybe more. Esther Rantzen and her wingman Johnny Ball head out for an evening dancing ceroc to find out how some senior singles are learning modern jive whilst also on the lookout for love. We also ask the ever-grumpy John Prescott what he'd write in a lonely hearts ad, and Edwina Currie gives some top tips on second marriages.
This time the baby boomers take a wry look at the ageing process, exploring some unusual ways to roll back the years. Actress Amanda Barrie and cricket commentator Henry Blofeld have a hilarious encounter with a cosmetic surgeon, before finding out whether dressing up brings down your perceived age. Sports presenter Jim Rosenthal experiences first-hand the problems caused by physical decline. Esther Rantzen reveals she's allergic to champagne. And Edwina Currie tries not to lose her reading glasses.
This time the baby boomers explore alternative ways to make a living in the twilight of our lives. Journalist Eve Pollard and campaigner Stanley Johnson struggle as assistants at a DIY store. Actress Amanda Barrie and singer Kenny Lynch try running a B&B. Cricket commentator Henry Blofeld considers a new career in wine. And John Prescott explains why he'd rather die than retire.
The boomers take a wry look at leisure and having the time of their lives. A coach-load of greying, good-time girls help comedian Roy Hudd cheer up politician John Prescott. Not easy. A septuagenarian punk does his best to put a snarl on ex-Tory minister Edwina Currie. Esther Rantzen explains why she always preferred the over 65s. And Kenny Lynch fantasises over the perfect care home.
