What is it like to be very old ? Three people in their 90’s share what it is like for them. Two have sound mental faculties: one of them discusses her declining physical capabilities and increasing discomforts and is wanting to die, the other remains relatively active, enjoys life but its ending holds no fears for him. The third old person has lost some of his memory capacity – but some things he recalls very accurately.

Part of a series of programmes by Malcolm Brown, who made the Talking About..’ series. For teaching and learning purposes, the human life span is divided into 12 linked stages, from the pre-school child to the very old.
