DO WE really want more ancient women on TV? And if so, perhaps we should examine why exactly? My feeling is that people of both sexes over the age of 60 should be doing different things. David Dimbleby gets more irascible as time goes on, while Sir David Frost's show on BBC4 is positively painful to watch - I have to study him closely because I'm afraid that he has stopped breathing.
