Argentina's Dirty War
During Argentina’s military dictatorship thousands of young women were murdered shortly after giving birth. Their babies were given to childless military couples. Now 37 years after the “Dirty War” the Grandmothers of the Placa de Mayo are finding their grandchildren and the couples who brought them up are being brought to trial. Newsnight's Sue Lloyd-Roberts has been to Argentina to report on the emotional meetings between grandmothers and their grandchildren.
New York: Older women's style
In 2008 Ari Seth Cohen began a blog called Advanced Style, showcasing photos of sartorially confident older women snapped on the streets of New York. The blog notched up 10 million hits and next month a glossy “Advanced Style” book goes on sale.
