Description
Each month over 1 million people reach the age of 60: those over the age of 80 years are the fastest-growing segment of the population. Some of these people will require care and support, but many more will be able to retain their independence, pride and productivity. Bob Hope, the well-known actor/comedian, introduces six individual short stories of the elderly and the role they play in their respective societies: a fisherman in India, a grandmother in Uganda, an activist in Argentina, a dance teacher in Cambodia, a grandfather in Egypt and a volunteer in New York. This video shows how active and productive the senior citizen is today.

In commemoration of the United Nations International Year of the Family 1994.
