We’ve heard of May-December romances, but the relationships followed in this one-off fall a bit beyond that scope. Produced by Nine Lives Media and GME for Channel 5 in the UK, this program highlights several couples who dare to cross the generation gap, or chasm in some cases, by becoming romantically involved. Here, you’ll meet a 39-year-old man who is seeing a 78-year-old woman, a 74-year-old man with an eight-week-old daughter by his 33-year-old wife, and others who maintain that true love is ageless.
