The Baby Boomers’ Guide to Growing Old is a light-hearted format that explores the world of the over-65s through the eyes of 13 celebrity senior citizens. People used to think that hitting 65 years old and retiring meant that life was over and it was time to slow down. However, old age is changing. Pensioners are living longer and aren’t going quietly. In this day and age it is more likely that they will start a new career, grow old disgracefully or travel around the world.

Each programme takes a wry look at a different subject area; love, work, body and fun. The celebrities pair up to spend time exploring the new ‘third age’ by immersing themselves in the activities and lifestyles of extraordinary older folk. These real world experiences are interwoven with amusing interviews and features.
