The fifth and final episode of Holding Back The Years sees Bill Turnbull retracing his youth, back to his student days in Edinburgh. He meets the incredible pensioners involved in a unique experiment that dates back to the 1940s and how the results it is producing today could help the scientific breakthroughs of tomorrow.
He’s given privileged access to a virtual hospital where its team monitor and treat patients sometimes hundreds of miles away from a central HQ. Plus Bill looks at the ways to fight the aging process from the physical with gym believers, to mediation through yoga, to the mechanical, with the latest in the big business that is mobility scooters.
