Greenlit: The Town That Never Retired, BBC1

The Town That Never Retired w/t – Today’s newborns are going to have to work until they’re 77. But could anyone actually cope with working so long and should they have to? To find out Nick Hewer and Margaret Mountford launch a bold experiment where they send 15 retirees in their 70s back to full time work. The pair uncovers some startling truths as the pensioners head back to work on a construction site, a chocolate factory, an Italian restaurant, a health clinic and an estate agent. Both Nick and Margaret are keen to find out if these OAPs still have what it takes, competing against younger employees and their colleagues preconceptions about the elderly. How will their bosses, fellow workers and the public react to a more mature workforce?
