Living Longer Lives: Blessing or Curse? BBC; "Granny-Dumping"

From BBC World Service (50 minutes)

"Half of all people born in industrialised countries today can expect to live to 100. What implications does that have for individuals and for societies around the world? Owen Bennett Jones and his guests discuss the many issues arising from an ageing society".

An interesting discussion - especially about the increasing challenges of providing adequate care, and the rapid ageing of some less wealthy societies; and the important role of immigrants.
