    (From BBC website) - Five much-loved celebrities get to the bottom of the key ageing concerns that affect the public.
    Bill Turnbull retraces his youth, back to his student days in Edinburgh where he sets out to expose some of the fake news we often hear about health in old age. 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.
    10 members of LBC + 1 researcher Prof Ian Deary were interviewed.
