June Brown believes that there is a distinct lack of respect for the elderly in the UK. She sets out to discover how well-known faces and elderly people from all walks of life feel about society’s attitude towards growing old.
June is concerned that there is a disconnect between the old and the young which could lead to the country betraying the generation who once made it great.
In the programme she explores thorny issues, such as the rising number of care homes replacing extended family and confronts her own plans for growing old gracefully.
