ABSTRACT
When I Get Older 9PM, BBC1 Compared with other countries, our attitude towards the elderly is scandalous. In this touching two-parter (concluding tomorrow), four famous pensioners (John Simpson, Gloria Hunniford, Lesley Joseph and a toned-down Tony Robinson) leave behind their comfortable, busy lives to spend four days living with some of Britain's 'forgotten' pensioners. As an experiment, it's a worthy effort - and lives are, in most cases, changed for the better (though one person is quite happy with things as they are, thanks very much). It makes pretty depressing viewing, but let's hope it will be a wake-up call for us all. Tomorrow, the quartet will experience residential care.
