Holding Back The Years

Ep 2/5

Tuesday 28 March



Angela returns to Devon, where she grew up, to take a thought provoking look at the different ways people can retire in Britain today – and she meets those who simply don’t want to.

She visits a new luxury type of senior living where the best facilities are literarily on your doorstep. By contrast Angela helps out at a local charity shop finding out why some volunteer and why some shop there. Here she meets pensioner Julie who leads a very frugal life and who shares some of her unusual money saving tips!

Angela heads to the local hospital wards to meet Monica, an 83-year old nurse who has no intention of retiring and she speaks to Martyn Rogers of Age UK who has advice on how people of all ages should be thinking about their retirement now.
