Here, award-winning director Sue Bourne examines the “art of aging” through the perspective of six women with an average age of 80. While the subjects may be in their 70s, 80s and – in some cases – their 90s, they possess a joie de vivre that is far beyond people half their age. In this special, they share their perspectives on fashion, staying young at heart, and the lessons they’ve learned over time. Consider this a good fit for lifestyle or female-skewing nets.
